Court Rules Separation of Church and State UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!!

U.S. Court of Appeals reaffirms historic decision:
"The First Amendment does not demand a wall
of separation between church and state."

"CINCINNATI -- The Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Monday by a vote of 19 to 5 rejected the American Civil Liberties Union's request that the full court reconsider a three-judge panel of the court's unanimous ruling in December that a Kentucky courthouse display of the Ten Commandments is constitutional."

The full court let stand without amendment the panel's earlier ruling, which included a broad and potentially historic declaration of constitutional law far beyond the legal reasoning required merely to uphold the Ten Commandments display in question.

The December ruling, authored by Senior Judge Richard Suhrheinrich of Michigan, broadly declared: "The First Amendment does not demand a wall of separation between church and state."

It also characterized the American Civil Liberties Union's repeated references to the so-called "separation of church and state" as "extra-constitutional" and "tiresome."

See page 13 of the Court of Appeals panel's December 2005 decision:

Gary Glenn, Midland, president of the American Family Association of Michigan, commented:

"By a nearly four-to-one margin, a full U.S. Court of Appeals has reaffirmed a stunning and historic reversal of half a century of misinformation and judicial distortion of the First Amendment guarantee of religious freedom. This constitutionally and historically accurate decision is now a controlling legal precedent for the federal Court of Appeals that rules on all Michigan cases, and we're proud to note it was authored by a Michigan judge."
