Guess you forgot, Restonin, the article you pointed out was referring to Palin giving what a speech for, as the article clearly states, "graduating evangelical students". Just because Palin was governor. It also stated: "Palin's spokeswoman in the governor's office, Sharon Leighow, said the state paid for the trip because Palin was invited to the events as the governor, not as a private citizen."
So, are all those on public office now barred from speaking their faith --within their own church--?? Are public officials now exempt from having any faith at all and disallowed from sharing it -- particularly when they were invited to do so??
Separation from church and state is a myth concocted by those who wish to remove any form of bot just any religion, but only Christianity, from the public square. It doesn't exist in any original documents of the Founding Fathers. We have freedom of religion. That doesn't translate into a "forced freedom from religion". Which, again, seems focused mainly against Christianity these days. What there was put in place were laws against forming a State Church such as what out Founding Fathers had fled from when they first came to America.
Might want to go back and refresh on American history. Sadly, too many these days are trying to rewrite it.
