Court upholds separation of church and state.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, says that government workers don't have the right to
proselytize on the job. Score one for the Founding Fathers.

SAN FRANCISCO - A county social services department cannot be required to accommodate the belief of an evangelical Christian employee that he must share his faith with clients and others on the job, a federal appeals court ruled Monday.

On balance, said the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the constitutional duty of the Tehama County agency to avoid entangling itself in religion outweighs the constitutional right of Daniel M. Berry to promote his religious views.

  1. Its about time the court started seeing it from the correct side. You have the right to freedom of religion but on your own time, not at work. Hell Yeah!!


I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
