Tom Delay, that bastion of sound political commentary, crawled out from under his rock long enough to toss some argle-bargle into the news cycle and further confuse already-ignorant conservatives.


DeLay said that Americans have forgotten "that God created this nation [and] that He wrote the Constitution, that it's based on biblical principles," but he is also optimistic that the tide is beginning to shift, noting that when he was in Congress, he sealed off the rotunda in the Capitol building so that leaders from Congress could come together for three hours to get on their knees and seek the face of God.

I know I don't have to tell you all how wrong he is. But for Tom's sake, maybe I can clear it up, based on Biblical principles.

God gave Moses the Ten Commandments.

Men wrote the US constitution, and did it with the express intention of not allowing this country to be a theocracy.

That is all.
