Letter: The Cross and the minnow

Editor:

I'm not sure where I read the story of someone trying to save a particular species of fish that is native to the Verde Valley - a 100-pound minnow.

This fish is large but it is a minnow because "it has no teeth" and the article went on to explain that several other species of fish evolved rigid backs to keep them from being eaten by these large minnows.

It sounded as though these fish were in control of their own evolution, which is ridiculous. Still, I've read of types of viruses that appeared to not only be in charge of their own evolution (mutation) but were smart enough to anticipate whatever medical science would come up with for vaccines and be resistant to it.

I am always amazed at the lack of credibility there is to the "Evolution Theory" and how strongly it is supported by the "Academic Community."

What does this have to do with the Cross?

The Cross being displayed in a public place or building (reference the phony mess over the Bread of Life Cross in the Camp Verde Community Center) is (according to the secular humanist agenda) a violation of the "Law on Separation of Church and State."

I want someone, anyone, to show me that law.

That law is as mythical as the fish or virus being in control of their own evolution.

The Bill of Rights; First Amendment restricts the government from establishing a religion or from dictating to people about exercising their chosen religion. The terminology "Separation of Church and State" or even the concept is not found in the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Federalist Papers, or any other documents that were part of the framework of this "Great Nation."

The Wall of Separation between Church and State was written to the "Danbury Baptists" by Thomas Jefferson and in it he went on to explain that the "Wall" is one directional and is designed to keep the government out of the church.

It was not meant to keep the Church from discussing politics in any way, until the mid 1900s when some politicians decided they could control the conversations in the churches by threatening to take away their "tax-exempt status," 501-c-3.

The minnow and the Cross are alike in that the history of both is being distorted by "anti-Christians" and unfortunately believed by a vast amount of people. The lies from the ACLU, secular humanist, so-called atheists, their political and academic enablers; go on and on, with no truth or substance; somewhat like that "Pink Rabbit" you've probably seen advertised on TV.

David Barton is the one claiming the wall of separation is one-eay, not Thomas Jefferson. Please take the time to look at Jefferson's Danbury letter before you rewrite history, Dale. And by the way, the Constitution doesn't contain the words "freedom of religion" either.
