Obama's Stimulus Bill is a War on Prayer

The provision bans money designated for school renovation from being spent on facilities that allow "religious worship." It has ignited a fury among critics who say it violates the First Amendment and is an attempt to prevent religious practice in schools.

According to the bill, which the Democratic-controlled House passed despite unanimous Republican opposition, funds are prohibited from being used for the "modernization, renovation, or repair" of facilities that allow "sectarian instruction, religious worship or a school or department of divinity."

Critics say that could include public schools that permit religious groups to meet on campus. The House provided $20 billion for the infrastructure improvements, of which $6 billion would go to higher education facilities where the limitations would be applied.

"What the government is doing is discriminating against religious viewpoints," said Matthew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, a Washington-based nonprofit organization that works to advance religious freedom.

"President Obama's version of faith-based initiatives is to remove the faith from initiative," said Staver, who points out Obama has "a completely different view on faith" from what he said during his presidential campaign.

"He is not the infallible messiah that some thought he would be," Straver said.

Just wait to see who Azz Clown Boy ... err ... I mean Obama puts in for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with that dried up old liberal cunt finally crocks from cancer.

(Now, do you really want to know how I feel about her? And no it has nothing to do with her being a woman or jewish or asleep at the bench aka "snorer in the court" and has everything to do with her being the ring leader of the "liberal wing" in the current court and having a Segal-Cover score of 0.680 placing her as the most liberal of current justices.

Hey Ruth hurry up and die and take that old Drunk Ted Kennedy with you you dried up cancer ridden hag!

LOL ... and that, my friends, is my rant of today.

Well, that just about sums it up!
