Blatantly unconstitutional

I was alarmed to see that state Rep. Rick Saccone, R-Elizabeth Township, manufactured a blatantly unconstitutional bill requiring all Pennsylvania schools to place “In God We Trust” within their walls (“‘In God We Trust' being sought for Pennsylvania schools,” Oct. 25 and TribLIVE.com).

But I do not just speak out as a concerned nonbeliever.

Anyone practicing — or not practicing — a religion should be dismayed by such an egregious violation of the First Amendment.

If a legislator can so easily create a bill that violates the separation of church and state, one could just as easily attempt to take away your freedom to practice your faith.
