Frightening and hilarious at the same time

The Freedom from Religion Foundation is accusing Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker of being a "theocratic dictator."

His act of theocratic oppression? Tweeting "Philippians 4:13." The verse reads, "I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me."

The Freedom from Religion Foundation people have got to find something more constructive to do with their time. Judicial decisions forcing photographers and bakers to violate their own religious convictions in order to accommodate same-sex "weddings" when willing photographers and bakers are just down the street, or the Obama administration's determination to force folks to violate their religious convictions by providing insurance coverage for abortions despite the fact that nobody forces their employees to work for their particular company are far greater threats to the First Amendment than a public official who is religious utilizing his rights of free speech.

If Gov. Walker is out of line, then so was Tom Jefferson when he wrote, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights..."

If anything, Jefferson's statement- speaking on behalf of an entire nation- is more suspect constitutionally than Walker's, since the latter- while speaking as a public official- was speaking only for himself.
