There he goes again....

Here is a new article by D. James Kennedy, featured by of course WorldNutDaily, on our Christian Nation founding.

Kennedy is promoting his special on the matter that airs this weekend on The Coral Ridge Hour, and in August, nationally on different "secular" stations.

Note that Kennedy goes far beyond the mere (legitimate) argument that modern court Establishment Clause cases or the ACLU's ideal vision of Separation of Church & State are not consistent with original intent. Rather Kennedy argues that America was founded to be a "Christian Nation" in a public/governmental sense (the exact opposite of what the Treaty of Tripoli states), and that the principles that found our public order -- those in the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence -- are taken straight from the Bible. Anyone familiar with the real history of our Founding knows this to be utter nonsense.

I've dealt with Kennedy and his nonsense on my blog here, here, here and here. And look for an essay refuting his weekend special next week on this blog.

Scary thing is I understand Iraq will have a constitution based on Islamic law!

Wonder if that makes the WorldNutDaily folks happy?
