Ya’ know, anybody who wants to be an elected official at ANY level of government in this country should have to take and pass a basic civics test. We’re not asking for great scholars in government (we know actual scholars are far too smart to ever get involved with such insanity) BUT a basic understanding of our Bill of Rights would go a long way.
Looking at this from the dopiest of all dopes in the Democratic Party (sorry, AOC, he’s starting to pass you) we can’t help but think California is not sending their best to DC.
C’mon, he should KNOW THIS, right?!
It’s not like separation of church & state is in the Bill of Rights or anything … https://t.co/mB9P0wFO2x

How hard do you think DeSantis laughed at this one?
There is nothing about the separation of church and state in the Bill of Rights.
He tried to prove he was right by citing the Establishment Clause:
The meltdown happening on the right over this is both predictable and also hilarious.

Dude is a walking turnip.
It’s not in the Bill of Rights or anything.
The First Amendment states that the government cannot establish an official state religion, favor one religion over another, or discriminate based on religion.
And the framers stated that our rights came from God.

He’s never read Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptist. Even if he did, it would still be beyond his ken.

He seems to think the fact government can’t establish a religion proves his point.
Seperation of Church and state is not in the Bill of Rights. It’s an out of context statement from Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists.
From the DoI though: “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”

The government could not establish a state-sponsored religion, but neither could it prohibit others from freely practicing their own religion.
The 1802 letter was to ease the minds of the Danbury Baptists…that they were protected from GOVERNMENT overreach.
