Default Re: Oh Christine...."Where in the constitution is the separation of church and state?

Well, I don't know much about her, but at the beginning of the video, the dude made a stupid comment that "creationism is solely a religious belief, therefore not to be taught in school and that evolution is widely accepted as fact, and should alone be taught."

Sorry, that is incorrect. You must first of all present the information of both sides, and let the young people exercise their critical thinking skills. Let them make up their own minds! I do! We don't live in a communist society (yet) but if we keep teaching students theories as though they are facts, we will certainly end up in a totalitarian situation.

On that principle, I wouldn't vote for that pin head. As far as the "separation of church and state," I would bet that 75% of Americans could not give an adequate definition of who, what, when, and where that came from.
