Hitchens vs Perkins on National Day of Prayer being Unconstitutional
So, according to Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council (you might remember these guys endorsing the murder of Dr. George Tiller) , a judge upholding the constitution’s first Amendment is not only activism, but also judicial arrogance. I think the only arrogance being displayed here is by cry-baby religious folks who can’t stand whenever secularism is upheld. It’s this very separation of church and state, however, that guarantees their own freedom of religion, for how could they practice their own beliefs if one is held as the “official” religion of the state?
Perkins also mistakenly assumes there’s a “secular purpose” to prayer. How exactly does that work? I’ll let Hitchens answer that inane statement himself. Do these guys ever get tired of their own bullshit?
