An op-ed in the New Your Times is friendly to Rick Santorum and says he merely recounted what lots of Americans think about how religion should control our government.
Brother Santorum, who wants to be President of the United States, was actually quite graphic. He said the very idea that America has separation of church and state makes him want to vomit.
Remember when American Atheists and some named plaintiffs sued over the World Trade Center “cross” being moved onto public land with public money? In their original complaint plaintiffs said that the idea of this artifact going into the World Trade Center museum gave them dyspepsia.
The media went crazy with ridicule. “It gave the plaintiffs a stomach ache,” they mocked.
So church and state coming together and causing gastric distress is funny. But wanting to vomit because of efforts to keep church and state separate is okay.
It is too crazy to contemplate in any rational way.
So here is my poem
Never let the Church and State
Get close enough to meet and mate;
For the safety of our nation
Prohibit this miscegenation;
Keep Church far from the bed of State;
Separate their greed and hate;
Abstinence is what they need
Or the monsters they will breed
Will mongrelize both law and creed.
Never let Church marry State—
Do not even let them date.
