Separation of Church and State

Thomas Jefferson wrote: "I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State."

Or it was Jefferson's understanding that intent of the First Amendment was indeed to keep a separtion of church and state.

I am not as educated as I assume Christine O’Donnell to be, yet it seems very clear and not worthy of debate in 2010.

If I had a dime for every time I see someone comment on a news article, blog or elsewhere "We are a Christian country," I would not exactly be rich, but I bet I could replace my laptop with a better model.
