Response from MRFF Founder and President Mikey Weinstein

You see I don’t think you understand very much about American history or how our government works… Please check out the seminal US Supreme Court case of Marbury versus Madison where the TRULY FOUNDATIONAL doctrine of judicial review is firmly established in America… Our constitution also does not provide In its actual text for , for instance, Miranda rights & about 2 million other things that are firmly established as our civil rights now… That is because our supreme court has construed the constitution to include those things… Another example, should you ever be arrested and indicted and tried for a criminal offense, you have the right to a speedy fair and public trial… Many people think that is in the constitution… The speedy and You see I don’t think you understand very much about American history or how our government works… Please check out the seminal US Supreme Court case of Marbury versus Madison with the doctrine of judicial review is firmly established in America… I constitution also does not provide, for instance, Miranda rights in about 2 million other things that are firmly established as our civil rights now… That is because our Supreme Court has construed the constitution to include those things… Another example, should you ever be arrested and indicted The speedy and Public trial part is but not the “fair” part… That is just one of a galaxy of other rights that are inherent now due to the review of our judicial system in construing the constitution… You are welcome!!… Mikey…

    Mikey’s response was great, but it is also true that the persons who wrote the 1st amendment stated repeatedly that they intended the words to require the separation of religion and the state. Madison actually became more strict about what this requires as he lived on, after he wrote the document. He stated, as did Jefferson, who wrote the Virginia law on which the 1st amendment was based, that religious freedom requires the total separation of religion from the state.

    These men, with all their flaws, realized what we know now to be true – that it is impossible to have religious freedom when government is involved in religion. That is why the amendment was worded as it is – it says the government can’t make laws respecting establishment of religion – that is a broad prohibition that goes beyond a prohibition on establishment of a state religion. It is broad enough to require the government to avoid all policy that helps religion in general, or any one religion or set of beliefs.

    I don’t know what “hovernment” is. Is that some kind of organization of helicopter pilots?

    Secondly, and as you say, government cannot be run by the church. But if government gives special privileges to a church, it gives the clear impression that it is, indeed, being run by the church.
