The Big Lie is exposed in this video over at Stop the ACLU. In it, David Barton tears apart the liberal myth that church and state were meant to be “separate” from each other in the modern sense.

In reality, and any honest historian can tell you this, the separation clause in the constitution was meant to prevent government from persecuting any religion. That was especially important to the founders since much of the Americas were colonized by people escaping religious persecution in Europe. That historical fact was fresh on their minds. The Founders wanted people to be free to practice their faith. Their aim was not to drive religion out of governmental institutions.

Research by David Barton, founder of Wallbuilders, Inc. exposes the alleged separation of church and state for the myth that it really is. The words separation of church and state don’t appear in any official government documents authored by the founding fathers. This concept and these particular words were fabricated by an ACLU attorney named Leo Pfeffer in 1947 in the Supreme Court case of Everson versus Board of Education of Ewing Township. That liberal supreme court imposed it on the nation by a 5 to 4 vote. The ACLU and other anti-Christian organizations and individuals have used it to harass Christians with ever since. It is also used by evolutionists to try to keep a theistic explanation of origins out of the public schools. Many young people today are not aware of the fact that this concept is an ACLU invention, and that it is a concept our founding fathers would have been appalled at.

Again, the video is at Stop the ACLU.
