S.E. Cupp Schools 'Reliable Sources' Panel on First Amendment

Cupp makes a fairly obvious point, and that is that Christine O'Donnell was absolutely right - the "separation of church and state" simply does not appear in the First Amendment.

Even the concept of a strict firewall between religion and public life is a very debatable interpretation of the text, and wasn't even seriously considered by the Supreme Court until 1947.

You'd think that most media pundits who have ripped O'Donnell for being "unfamiliar" with the First Amendment would, you know, be familiar with it themselves.

You'd be wrong.
