Response from a Christian Separation of Church/State

Alright, lets look at this from another prospective. Indeed, as you claim so loudly; the constitution of the United States of America does unequivically separate church and state. For many years I have been a proponent of this very separation. I do however have to say that I find it shocking that people whom seem to be so intelligent, and able to think for themselves would spread such misinformation.
First, separation of church and state is good, I don't want our government to support or condemn ANY religion; it goes against the very values that this country was founded upon. Second, have you ever thought about the rights of those whom wish to pray ? Of course not, and those whom wish to pray have surely not thought of your rights, only their desire to have their way. Why don't we try to reason in this age of madness, and HELP each other rather than fighting.
Our children DESERVE much better, and this quite frankly is a bad example that you are ALL setting for them. Lets let the children decide if they want to pray or not. A minute of silence for them to pray or reflect will not hurt them. If they pray to their respective "God" then let them, if they choose to think about something else, no one will ever know except them.
Honestly people, how many children have you ever seen that beat each other up over religion? This hatred is taught by YOU ! The person whom is supposed to be guiding this child through the most critical time of their lives. Shame on all of you, you have ALL failed your children, it's not too late settle this now and save what little dignity you have left in your children's eyes.
My response: I'm very well aware that Secular Humanism, which I strongly oppose as much as Christian fundamentalism, is waging a war against both Christianity and the US Constitution. My video above expresses that view and why. Thanks for your e-mail.
