Communist Candidates are the Enemies of America

With so much misunderstanding regarding the phrase "wall of separation between church and state," it is helpful to review opinions of past Supreme Court Justices.
"Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of ‘separation of church and state.’”
"The First Amendment, however, does not say that in every and all respects there shall be a separation of church and state...Otherwise, the state and religion would be aliens to each other - hostile, suspicious, and even unfriendly…"
"Municipalities would not be permitted to render police or fire protection to religious groups.”
“Policemen who helped parishioners into their places of worship would violate the Constitution.”
“Prayers in our legislative halls; the appeals to the Almighty in the messages of the Chief Executive; the proclamations making Thanksgiving Day a holiday; 'So Help Me God' in our courtroom oaths; these and all other references to the Almighty that run through our laws, our public rituals, our ceremonies would be flouting the First Amendment.”
"... A fastidious atheist or agnostic could even object to the supplication with which the Court opens each session: 'God save the United States and this Honorable Court…”
"We find no constitutional requirement which makes it necessary for government to be hostile to religion and to throw its weight against efforts to widen the effective scope of religious influence…”
Many of you may not be aware that in the very week that Congress approved the Establishment Clause as part of the Bill of Rights for submission to the states, it enacted legislation providing for paid Chaplains for the House and Senate...
“We cannot read into the Bill of Rights such a philosophy of hostility to religion."
"Our history is replete with official references to the value and invocation of Divine guidance in deliberations and pronouncements of the Founding Fathers and contemporary leaders.
Make no mistake; communists are adversaries of Christianity and in the words of Declaration signer John Witherspoon, “Whoever is an avowed enemy of God, I scruple not to call him an enemy of his country...”
"The very chamber in which oral arguments on this case were heard is decorated with a notable and permanent - not seasonal - symbol of religion: Moses with the Ten Commandments. Congress has long provided chapels in the Capitol for religious worship and meditation.”
