Have you ever noticed that the myth of separation of church and state only applies to Christians, Jews and conservatives, but not to liberals or Muslims?
When is the last time you heard of a public school holding a Christian or Jewish event?
Did you know that in Dearborn, Michigan, is the home of the largest enclave of Muslims in America?
Did you also know that while Obama was in the White House, the high school in Dearborn held a girls only prom for Muslim girls?
Did you know that the congressional district that includes parts of Detroit and Dearborn is the district that just sent Rashib Tlaib to Congress?
So, ask yourself, why has the federal government been funding the Nation of Islam for their religious recruitment in prisons?
Washington Examiner – Congressman calls on Justice Department to halt federal funding for Nation of Islam – Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., Monday called on the Department of Justice to immediately halt federal funding to the Nation of Islam, after the Washington Examiner first reported that the group has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the government to teach religious studies programs to prison inmates.
In a letter to the Justice Department obtained by the Washington Examiner, Buchanan called the report “disturbing” and said the government’s funding of the openly anti-Semitic black separatist group was “downright immoral.”
“As you may know, the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center have designated the Nation of Islam as a hate group for its racist and anti-Semitic beliefs,” Buchanan wrote in the letter to acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.
“The federal government should not use taxpayer dollars to subsidize one of the most infamous hate groups in the United States,” Buchanan added. “That’s why I’m demanding your department immediately cease all contracts with the Nation of Islam and prohibit it from receiving any contracts in the future.” …
First of all, there never has been any legal foundation for a separation of church and state.
It has been a misinterpretation of a letter sent by Thomas Jefferson, but was never law and never part of the Constitution nor part of any law.
However, if liberals and progressives insist on enforcing this non-existent law, then it needs to be equally enforced against Muslims and the Nation of Islam.
