As we enjoy our secular chocolate eggs (and Bill O's scorn) brought to us by the pagan fertility bunny, let us all consider the the wisdom of our founding fathers to not only insisting on church and state separation, but putting it in writing; I like to note that they wrote that amendment FIRST, it was so important. The Republican side of the aisle continues to attack both the reproductive rights of women and the marriage rights of LGBT citizens in the name of their own religious "liberty." The separation of church and state protects both, and that freedom of, or freedom from, religion is a choice every American has the right to pursue. Thank you for letting me be part of your week.
