Epic Constitution Fail

1 comment October 19th, 2010at 11:48am Posted by Eli

Christine O’Donnell, constitutional scholar:

O’Donnell criticized Democratic nominee Chris Coons’ position that teaching creationism in public school would violate the First Amendment by promoting religious doctrine.

Coons said private and parochial schools are free to teach creationism but that “religious doctrine doesn’t belong in our public schools.”

“Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?” O’Donnell asked him.

When Coons responded that the First Amendment bars Congress from making laws respecting the establishment of religion, O’Donnell asked: “You’re telling me that’s in the First Amendment?”

Wow.  She’s running for United States Senate and she has absolutely no idea what the First Amendment says.  And Republican voters thought she would make a better United States Senator than Mike Castle.

My favorite part:

“You actually audibly heard the crowd gasp,” Widener University political scientist Wesley Leckrone said after the debate….

Of course, if it had been a Tea Party rally, she probably would have gotten a standing ovation… from the same people who say they want to protect the Constitution from Obama and them damn librul Democrats.

    Coons has misinterpreted the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. There IS nothing in the Constitution about the separation of Church and State.
