A Texas Republican announced over the weekend that he plans to resign his post as a member of the Electoral College rather than cast a ballot for US President-elect Donald Trump, a man he deems "not biblically qualified for office."
Separation of church and state is a warped reading of a letter written by Jefferson.
What is confusing is that delegate's thinking.

I don't want any religion influencing government policies.

This country could not and would not be anything more than a British colony, . . . or a wilderness, . . . if it were not for the CHRISTIAN religion.
Your thought pattern, OakOwl, . . . is totally faulty, . . . wrong, . . . and cannot function in a society.
ALL societies that have ever endured over any length of time based their premise for being on some god(s) they believed in.
The USA put it's trust in Jehovah God, . . . Jesus Christ, His Son, . . . and the Holy Spirit of God that assists men/women in their daily living. Without Them and the trust we Christians have put in Them, . . . we would not exist, . . . the Souix, Navaho, etc would still be chasing buffalo here.
You would be still on some other continent, . . . probably wearing a loin cloth or bear skin, . . . hunting and grubbing for food, . . . and trying your best not to become a menu item for those/whatever is around you.
But, . . . today you are receiving the benefit of Christianity just in your citizenship, . . . and for you to denounce it is blasphemous and insulting to God. BUT, . . . just stick around, . . . your reward for doing so is coming.
Only two nations have ever given their citizens total freedom to be what they want to be, . . . to soar to the greatest heights they can, . . . USA and Israel. Funny, . . . both just happen to be on the same religious page.
The one you are not on.
May God bless,
If I'm not mistaken, our constitution was written with the guidance of judao Christian principles, pardon my spelling , Christianity is at the heart of the United States, separation of church and state is about the government not being able to dictate what religion you chose to follow, doesn't say anything about not being able to display a nativity on city property. Some liberal judge decided that. Ok, I'm ready to be taken to task now.....
Christianity was never intended to be separate and unmentionable in government or politics. Taking 7 words out of the context of one letter after all framers of the Constitution were long dead does not make the current invented reasoning true. The actual meaning from Jefferson to a fearful congregation in Connecticut to reassure parishioners that the federal government would not dictate the content of sermons. The letter never remotely implied that religion would not dictate politics, law or public discourse or uninhibited expression of Christianity which in the 18th century was a direct translation of the word religion in common language.
I wonder it this elector would have any problems voting for milk toast Romney or McLame, the last two GOP republican presidential losers and accredited RINOs?

The ignorant evil dumbasses in the obama administration have been allocating your and my tax dollars to invite thousands of islamists under the political guise of giving them "Refugee" status, then awarding them "permanent residence status" (green card) and providing education, housing and food to a vast majority of them. However, this administration believes incorrectly that islam is a religion and refuses to see the reality which is that followers of islam adhere to a geo-political ideology of world domination by killing, converting or enslaving the infidel.
Regardless, this administration is influenced greatly by this ideology that they argue emphatically is a religion.
A good example is the murdering muslime who attacked people at Ohio State University yesterday. His goal was to further his so called religion by killing the infidel.
Last question; Do you like apples?
Well, how do you like them apples?
