"'Wall of Separation,' a phrase nowhere to be found in the Constitution"-Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart - American Minute with Bill Federer
Judge Richard Suhrheinrich wrote in ACLU v Mercer County, 2006: "The ACLU makes repeated reference to 'the separation of church and state.' This extra-constitutional construct has grown tiresome.
The First Amendment does not demand a wall of separation between church and state. Our nation's history is replete with governmental acknowledgment and in some cases, accommodation of religion."
