Rethinking Leftism (Continuing a Theme)

An interesting question is raised on the Commons Blog. Re-worded by me, it is this: Given the success of the left in promoting the notion of "separation of church and state," could the proposed U.S. Park Service takeover of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for teaching purposes be ruled unconstitutional, given that King's speeches and philosophy were of an explicitly and unapologetically Christian nature?

People who have read the Constitution realize the phrase "separation of church and state" is not in it, of course, but many lefties pretend it exists -- and some lefties are judges.

Next up for questioning: The King federal holiday. Does it honor the man or the beliefs he represents? If the latter -- guess what -- they are religious.
