They've Already Gone Too Far...

Why stop now? Los Angeles name too godly for U.S.?

The issue is being raised in the wake of the decision this week by Los Angeles County to remove a small cross from its official seal, as reported by WorldNetDaily.

Ironically, the most prominent image in the L.A. County seal is one of Pomona, the pagan Roman goddess of fruits and nuts, though the American Civil Liberties Union did not object to the goddess in its push to have the cross removed.
The goddess of fruits and nuts is OK - this is priceless!

"The logic of the ACLU's reasoning would suggest that Santa Monica should be renamed Monica, San Diego should be renamed Diego and on down the line," he said. "Los Angeles is a similar reference to angels. The full title of Los Angeles is a distinctly religious name."

Yeah, I know, they're not actually trying to change the name yet, but someone thought of it and you know where this is going. If you actually take the time to read the U.S. Constitution you will not find anything about "the seperation of church and state." The first ammendment is the closest you will find:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The government cannot make a law prohibiting the free exercise of religion by it's citizens. Oops. Been there, done that.

You have to have a law degree to not be able to understand the 1st ammendment. Once you become a judge you are forced to rule contrary to the U.S. Constitution - it's similar to opposite day on Spongebob Squarepants, except it's not funny - and it's destroying our country.
