“Where in the Constitution is separation of church and state?”
–Christine O’Donnell to Chris Coons, Delaware senatorial debate, October 19, 2010.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ….”
– Amendment I, Constitution of the United States of America
“…I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States ….”
– United States Senate Oath of Office
Can you swear to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States” when you don’t know what’s in it?
“The good news is that the First Amendment also lets O’Donnell make a fool of herself.”
–John Kelso, Austin American-Statesman.
