Church And State...


I don’t know about you, but when I think of separation of church and state, I think of playing Frank Sinatra melodies on the banjo… (to tune of “Love and Marriage”)

Church and state, Church and state
Jefferson said they should separate
Though some folks dispute it
No historian can refute it

Church and state, Church and state
The wall between ‘em should be tall and straight
Huckabee might hate it
But church and state are separated

Kentucky clerks might behave like jerks
Use religion to discriminate
She can’t disparage same sex marriage
Trying to marry church to state

Don’t be foolish, Don’t be clueless
Do you want the Taliban to rule us?
Muslim, Jew or Christian
It’s our American…our American
It’s our American tradition!
