This has got to be one of the most dumbfounding [we're tempted to drop the "founding"] statements made by a member of the liberal media regarding the coronavirus.
On his MSNBC show this morning, Ali Velshi suggested that by deeming houses of worship "essential," thus qualifying them to reopen, President Trump could be in violation of the "separation of church and state."

Leftists defending government crackdown on religion and claiming that defending the first amendment is unconstitutional.
So why aren’t state decrees closing churches violations of Church and State? The First Amendment guarantees Freedom of Religion because the practice of religion IS essential.
A little more separation of the Press and the Democrats would help this nation immensely.
Liberals like Velshi continue to cite a non-existent constitutional provision on “separation of church and state.” In any case, Pres. Trump is in no way promoting the establishment of a state religion. He is promoting the reopening of ALL houses of worship!
Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
Why take advise from a Muslim?
If Mr. Velshi is that bent outta shape by President Trump’s common sense decision, I suggest he file suit accordingly.
This has to be the dumbest thing I ever heard by a talking head. And there is plenty of competition.
Abortion is non essential. In every sense. Not only are they allowed to go on, planned Parenthood reportedly received 80 million from corona bail out
Then why has state and local governments closed churches? Mosques stay open.
Tell a Liberal that there is no such thing as “the separation of Church and State” in the Constitution and see what happens.
IIRC, Barr has already sent some letters to some governors.
“This has to be the dumbest thing I ever heard by a talking head.”
GMTA. First line of article:
“This has got to be one of the most dumbfounding [we’re tempted to drop the “founding”] statements made by a member of the liberal media regarding the coronavirus.”
And another devil-worshipper heard from....
Go pound sand where the sun don’t shine, Velshi.
Govt forcing them to close was a “violation of separation of church and state”, dumb-azz.
What part of Congress shall make no law regarding and establishment of religion or the free exercise thereof is it that this cretin is failing to grasp? Trump is undoing the unconstitutional interference by the state, here. Count on the left to get it exactly backwards every time.
Pretty clear to me, and it applies at a local level as well...
Jesus Christ was the original truth telling God-fearing Republican
They nailed him to the cross for it
Our great and wonderful president Donald J Trump stands for liberty and justice and the media has been trying to nail him to the cross for his entire existence in the political arena
Just as the evil traders who nailed Jesus to across only to see him resurrected and bring light to the world forever will see that all of their efforts to falsely defame this wonderful man will also only serve to make him stronger
Leave it to a stupid Democrat to screw up interpreting our Constitution. So desperate to taint this President anyway they can they don’t even attempt to think before they spew their BS in our faces.
I’m sick of Democrats. They are more dangerous to us than any virus from anywhere.
