“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
An elected official has certain influence and power over people similar to a teacher and their students. By promoting religion they are violating the idea of separation of church and state.
The governors can pray all they want too. The citizens of the state can pray all they want too. A governor cannot stand up and promote religion.
no it's not.....no one has to follow his request. silly, really.
