Here they go again. Liberals are having a cow over the ‘Museum of the Bible’, located in Washington D.C. I almost added to this title ‘101’, like a course type article, because it feels like we patriots are always explaining basic American fundamentals to the mindless liberals masses. A task that seems more taxing than herding cats.
The Museum of the Bible, despite what the mainstream media and their worshipers want to believe, is NOT in violation of ‘Separation of Church and State’. I wonder though, would they be this outraged if the Museum represented any other religion, besides Christianity? Not likely. In a new article by American Thinker, Kimberly Bloom Jackson breaks it down for our cry-baby opposition in the most brilliant way. Take a look.
Taking center stage in our nation’s capital is the new Museum of the Bible – a massive $500-plus-million-dollar, privately funded, state-of-the-art facility dedicated to the world’s most famous book.
Some in the media, most notably on CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today, seem to be trying to stir up a little hysteria by claiming that the museum opened “under a cloud of suspicion.” Because the museum is located just two blocks from the U.S. Capitol, they fear that it might threaten the “separation of church and state.”
Apparently, some people are still clueless about what the phrase “separation of church and state” actually means, let alone realize that it’s nowhere to be found in the U.S. Constitution or any other founding document.

Factually speaking, I find it fascinating that in 1800, Congress approved the House Chamber to be used for Sunday services. These religious services were non-denominational and available to everyone, including members of Congress. Public worship in the Capitol was so popular that it lasted 100 years!
Even today, the walls of the Capitol’s rotunda are decorated with some of the most exquisite religious artwork I have ever seen, including eight grand paintings showcasing America’s religious heritage. In fact, our nation’s capital is adorned with a treasure trove of religious imagery on historic monuments, in museums, and in government buildings, suggesting that God isn’t such a taboo after all, as secularists would have us believe.
It was President Thomas Jefferson who first penned the phrase “a wall of separation between church and state” in an 1802 letter to…
