Exploding the myth
of church-state separation

“The constitutional separation of church and state” – a reference to the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights – is a phrase Americans hear literally every day from the news media, from legal organizations, from politicians and pundits, and especially from zealous attorneys and judges.

“Separation of church and state” was used by the ACLU to demand that a banner proclaiming “God bless America,” erected outside a school shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, to honor the 3,000 murdered Americans, must be taken down.

“Separation of church and state” was used to deny a little, handicapped girl the right to read her Bible on the bus on the long trip to school.

“Separation of church and state” was used to take Justice Roy Moore’s 10 Commandments monument out of the Alabama Judicial Building, and it is being used right now to challenge the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.

The phrase is repeated so often and with such assurance, one would think it is the keystone phrase of the U.S. Constitution.

And yet – the words “separation,” “church,” or “state” are not found in the First Amendment, nor in any other founding document for that matter.

In fact, the entire “constitutional separation of church and state” is a recent fabrication of activist judges who have ignored the Constitution’s clear meaning.

Indeed, says U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist, in the stunning November issue of WND’s Whistleblower magazine, “There is simply no historical foundation for the proposition that the Framers intended to build the ‘wall of separation’ [between church and state].”

Titled “THE MYTH OF CHURCH-STATE SEPARATION,” this special edition, says WND Editor Joseph Farah, is “a definitive, once-and-for-all, legal and historical refutation of the fiction that the Constitution was intended to prohibit or infringe on freedom of religious expression – whether at home, church, school, or in the public square.”

“It’s a myth,” said Farah, “and this issue of Whistleblower slam-dunks the case proving that’s all it is.”

Starting with the famous 1801 letter written by the Baptists of Danbury, Conn., to newly elected President Thomas Jefferson – and Jefferson’s brief response, in which he coined the phrase “a wall of separation between church and state” to assure his constituents that the new Constitution would not establish a national church or otherwise infringe on their religious liberties – this special Whistleblower edition attacks the church-state issue from every conceivable angle.

Contents include:

These and many other articles make the November Whistleblower the most devastating journalistic expose yet of the fraudulent “separation of church and state.”

“You will positively cheer when you read this issue,” said Farah. “It is the silver bullet people have been waiting for, that will finally shoot down this insidious charade that has been destroying every last vestige of our Christian heritage from America. Maybe this edition of Whistleblower will finally help turn things around.”
