Kim Simac: Kawnstitushional Skawler

"Mama always said, stupid is as stupid does..." (h/t Cognitive Dissonance and Blogging Blue)

Here's some edumakation for you, Kim (and that profoundly ignorant woman with you in the video):
  1. "God" is not in the Constitution. Anywhere. Go look it up.  The word "Creator" isn't in there either (it's in the Declaration of Independence) The words"Jesus," "Allah," "Buddha," or "Krishna" don't appear in there either.
  2. Please see "Establishment Clause" on Wikipedia: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."  That's the part that says church and state are to be kept apart.  See how that works? No law establishing religion (including the brand of ignorant fundamentalist claptrap to which you clearly adhere) but that you have the right to practice whatever ignorant, fundamentalist cult-of-stupidity you choose to worship.  Thomas Jefferson re-affirmed this in a letter, too.
  3. "In God We Trust" was not adopted as the official motto of The United States until 1956 (although it did appear on coins as early as 1864).  It did not appear on paper money until 1957.
Please open a book once in awhile (other than the bible), and for heaven's sake, turn off Fox News and read the f'ing Constitution!  You clearly know nothing about the document or the men who wrote it.
