Religious Whackos at it Again

There is a rouge Congressman who wants America to devote a week each year to honor America's "rich religious history". He's trying to say that it'd be a week for religion in general, but the House Resolution has clear overtones and odes concerning Christianity. The Congressman, Randy Forbes, formed the Congressional Prayer Caucus to combat the "radicals" who want to keep religion and government seperate from one another. Those "radicals" date all the way back to the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, since the Establishment Clause (in the First Amendment) states that Congress shall make no law regarding establishment of religion.

The selection of Bush is one of the worst things that's happened to America, and this is only one reason why. It's empowered these religious nutjobs to steer this country in a fundamentalist direction, by making bills and loopholes that you can drive the Popemobile through. I can't care what these people do in their backwater hellhole states, but keep it out of the federal government.
