Separation of Church and State, properly understood, was established with the first clause of the first amendment in the American Bill Of Rights.
The secular government cannot mandate or dictate the religion of the citizenry.
But since that was undone by the unconstitutional and therefore illegal actions of the Supreme Court described in the Separation of Church and State treatment, the American government has been progressively and systematically establishing "science" (and supposedly scientific atheism) as a replacement for Christianity in American religion, and "science" as a replacement for the original American Judaeo-Christian ethos and moral code.
Militant secularism or religious-cleansing is just as unconstitutional as is the establishment of any other state religion. (Atheism is a religion.)
What has been politically developing in America, almost unresisted, is a progressively more powerful and insistent religious cleansing of, first, the government, then the public square and finally the citizenry of not only Christianity and Judaism, but of all religion. Mixed with a cloudy 'all religions are the same', and/or a semi-acceptable 'general spirituality', the progressive political trend has been to establish material science as the end-all be-all in all matters, including the determination of right and wrong.
Done by any level government in America, that is, definitively, a direct violation of the religion clause of the first amendment. The American government is imposing a new religion of science, or, scientific atheism on the American citizenry. Science is becoming, if it has not already become, the official state religion of America.
Are we now, or are we to become, just another theocracy?
We have stated elsewhere herein the premise that atheism is a religion, or at least a religious belief system, because it is based on faith alone, with no real science behind it. The atheist devotee cannot prove that there is no god, or no supernational existence, yet he believes it, on faith alone. That is a religious belief, not a scientific one. It is based solely on belief, not science.
And "science" just keeps proving itself to be unreliable. In fact, real science is rarely practiced in the world today; most of the world's "scientists" are really practitioners of the qasi-religion of Scientism. And look at all the failed theories of scientism, still pushed today as being in some way scientific. Darwinism, Freudianism and Marxism lead the parade.
Marxism calls itself scientific, and calls it's political secularizing and imposed atheism scientific, it's redistributionism to be "economic science", and its politics to be "social science".
No? Then why does his "science" dominate politics all over the world today?
One possible answer is that Marxism now owns and operates science.
Virtually all of science is now politicized, politically weaponized and politically controlled.
Now, in national times of grief, disaster or special need, American politicos stand up before the crowd and call for a "moment of silence".
What the hell is that? In honor of what, or who? Science? The Void? Scientists?
Instead of prayer, we call for silence? What the hell have we become?
How could we, as a decent Christian people, have allowed this to happen? How could we have been so blind as to have even allowed it in, establish itself here, let it to go by and grow without resistance?
If an anti-Christian and anti-American Moslem like Ilhan Omar can side with Hamas and Taliban against America, and if an anti-Christian and anti-American Moslem like Rashid Talib can refer to an American President as a M*F*er, then any other American officeholder can certainly invite a crowd to join in praying the Lord's prayer in public. He has just as much right to freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, etc., as any other American citizen.
Any Christian call to prayer would be answered positively (and I believe, thunderously).
It's time to get back to American constitutional basics.
I refer you to Progressive Communism for how we are being destroyed as a nation. And to the Impeachable Offenses pages, and to how uconstitutional bureaucracies, regulations, laws and legal precedents are legally nullifiable.
There is nothing wrong with America that a return to pure, raw, original American constitutionalism won't fix.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Sign the Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again.
Join Cardinal Burke's Storm Heaven Rosary Campaign.
Get behind a President Trump and a Vice President Donald Trump Jr, and make America Constitutional again.
Pray for a strategic collaboration between Abp. Vigano and Trump.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12
Seek the Truth; Find the Way; Live the Life.
Please God, and Live Forever.

Scientism is the New Road to Serfdom
"Today’s great threat to capitalist prosperity, personal liberty, and constitutional government is not Marxism, socialism or any other variant of traditional left-wing ideology, states David Stockman, in a five-part series in David Stockman’s Contra Corner, written in February 2021. Stockman was Director of the Office of Management and Budget (1981-1985) under President Ronald Reagan.
The threat is scientism, which he defines as “the false claims that economic science, public health science and climate science, among others, require sweeping increases in state intervention and control.” Real-time instances include John Kerry’s recent proclamation that we have just 9 years until irreversible climate disaster and the on-going depredations of the Virus Patrol (https://tinyurl.com/3ak2vyba):
I've read a number of definitions for scientism. Here's mine:
"scientism is science in the hands of depraved new pagans"
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport. Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matthew 7:13–15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator's supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights." --Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others." --St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
