From former chairman of the Texas Board of Education Don McLeroy:
“Absolutely not. This idea of the separation of church and state is clearly stated in the First Amendment where it says there will be no state establishment of religion. That is very important. That is what was meant by that. This wall of separation metaphor has actually gotten a little bit too strong where people are saying well if you’re religious you can’t be involved.”
A pure strawman. No one says that religious people can’t be involved in political activity. Absolutely no one.
