Know what makes me bizarre on a regular basis? People who do not understand that being patriotic, that being American, in the US does not mean being a Christian. Especially when the people who spout that divisionist garbage are running for office.

Look at the dangerous clown in this video below – skip to 0:48 for her asking, “Where in the Constitution is separation of Church and State?” and then check out the last fifteen seconds of the clip, where she natters on in disbelief that it’s (ZOMG!) right there in the First Amendment. This is the Tea Party’s finest, my friends. If she gets into office, it’s balloon animals for everyone!*

For absolute clarity:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Well, holy guacamole, will you look at that. No law respecting an establishment of religion, huh? And we’re still fighting over who gets to get married, with jerks on the right backing up their claims with that ever so handy because-my-bible-says-so stuff.

And people wonder why I don’t leave the house.

*You know, something to keep your hands busy so you don’t touch yourself.
