Auto da Fe Time for Mayor Adams

2/28/23 Politico:

I do not necessarily agree with his implied correlation means causality but it is a pretty severe slap in the face of important Democratic special-interest hate groups.

"At an interfaith breakfast Tuesday, Mayor Eric Adams seemed to regret the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling that banned school-sponsored prayer in 1962.

“When we took prayers out of schools, guns came into schools,” Adams said to applause from hundreds of religious leaders gathered at an annual event in Manhattan.

Adams was discussing the role that people who attend synagogues, churches, Sikh temples and mosques could play in reducing societal ills from homelessness to domestic violence.

"Don’t tell me about no separation of church and state. State is the body, church is the heart. You take the heart out of the body, the body dies,” Adams said."

  1. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof".

    I read this as the government cannot require prayer, and it cannot forbid it.
