House Undermines The Separation of Church and State

Congress has had a busy week doing all they can to destroy and undermine the protections
of the U.S. Constitution and The Geneva Convention.

There was so much going on that few people knew they were sneaking another one past all of us.

With little public attention or even notice, the House of Representatives has passed a bill that undermines enforcement of the First Amendment's separation of church and state. The Public Expression of Religion Act - H.R. 2679 - provides that attorneys who successfully challenge government actions as violating the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment shall not be entitled to recover attorneys fees. The bill has only one purpose: to prevent suits challenging unconstitutional government actions advancing religion.

This is a direct attack on the Constitution and your civil liberties all being used as a ploy to pander
for those Christian Fundie votes.

Well... another day... another part of our Constitution gets thrown in the shredder.

This has indeed been a busy week for the felons....oops I mean Congressmen.
They really have slip personality disorder or something.. Its like; they do these things and forget they ever happened. How much more damage can the Constitution take?

They are counting on ignorance and complacency to further their agenda.

This new legislation allows you to sue the government, but now it's at your own expense.

Obviously this will be a powerful deterrent to people who are fully within their rights to bring
suite against the government.

I always tend to believe that whenever civil liberties are toyed with by another passage of a bill, there is another story that acts as a "weapon of mass distraction" so that the public would not focus was it going on in Congress. The sad thing, I've discovered, is that Americans are not mad enough to care.

Sadly enough, if people don't wake up, we will soon be in a theocracy.
