Eric Adams’s surprising statement might finally put an end to this foolishness about faith

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

New York City Mayor Eric Adams made headlines on Feb. 28 when he said, “When we took prayers out of schools, guns came in schools… Don’t tell me about no separation of church and state. State is the body. Church is the heart. You take the heart out of the body, the body dies.” In true form, the liberal media jumped into outrage mode.  CNN labeled the comments “controversial” and “alarming;” The New York Times went with “surreal;” and an opinion writer at MSNBC described Adams’s “theocratic impulses.”

But Mayor Adams was exactly right in questioning the secular’s sacrosanct “separation of church and state.”  While the Constitution is clear that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,” the term “separation of church and state” is nowhere in our founding documents. 

Despite this, the concept has been used to create a “religion of secularism” – the very outcome that the Supreme Court repeatedly warned against for decades.  In my forthcoming book “Serenity in the Storm: Living through Chaos by Leaning on Christ,” I explore the way in which God has been excised from society contrary to what our Founders intended.
