['Alleging that a Mt. Juliet elementary school Christmas play, a group of praying parents, a national prayer day and teacher-led prayer in class are among a range of religious activities that violate the separation of church and state, the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee filed a suit in federal court yesterday.']
I think the ACLU (American Chuckleheaded Liberals Union) needs to read more of the amendment that they purport "separates church and state". It also says "... nor prohibiting the free practice thereof" (speaking of religion). And for the life of me I can't understand how you get separation of church and state out of "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion". By adhering to the "nor prohibiting" part and allowing the "free practice thereof", Wilson County is not establishing a religion.
We musn't allow common sense to interfere with the system.
