Talking Points

From today’s TFN News Clips:

“Here’s what we gotta realize as Christians, every student on every campus in this country that gets that philosophy of a godless Constitution — keep religion out of this political process and out of civil government — every one of those students is gonna impact you.”

— Rick Green, who could be the Republican nominee for a Texas Supreme Court seat if he beats Fort Worth family district court judge Debra Lehrmann in Tuesday’s primary runoff.

  1. Which part of Amendment 1 of the Constitution doesn’t he get? “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion….”

    Clearly the founding fathers had the foresight to recognize the inherent conflict created when religion and politics try to mix. And yet a right-wing Republican, potential Texas Supreme Court nominee doesn’t get it?

    But what are we expecting anyway? Rational thought and discourse? Logic? Reason? Perish the thought. Where religion is mixed in such notions go right out the door.

  2. I moved to Texas 18 months ago, and I’m already considering leaving… Too much insanity in local politics…

  3. Rick Green was interviewed on “Texas Matters” (carried by the local NPR affiliate) the other day. Scary dude who’s most likely to win. Like our Professor Garman teaches us, Mr. Green’s message is that there is no such critter as “separation of church and state” since that phrase does not appear in the Constitution. Therefore, Green’s campaign is that he’s going to do everything he can from the bench to bring church and state together as they should be. Such is his goal.
