The concept of separation of church and state was presented in a letter by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Convention in Connecticut. It advocated that we should not have in America a head of state who was also the head of the church, ala King Henry VIII of England. The letter also advanced the First Amendment right of freedom of religion and the free exercise thereof, but not the establishment of a national religion.
However, over time, due to our collective lack of knowledge, liberal progressive socialists have used “separation of church and state” to separate America from its faith heritage in their march toward creation of a secular humanist state. And as sheep being led to the slaughter, we Christians have allowed them to have success, legally and culturally.
There is no law, no proclamation, no constitutional mention of the so-called “separation of church and state.” It doesn’t exist.
