Delaware GOP Candidate: ‘Separation of Church and State’ Came from Hitler
The Delaware GOP’s candidate for the state’s open House seat, Glen Urquhart, says Thomas Jefferson never used the phrase “separation of church and state.” (He did.)
You know who said it? Hitler.
“Do you know, where does this phrase separation of Church and State come from? Does anybody know? … Actually, that’s exactly, it was not in Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists. He was reassuring that the federal government wouldn’t trample on their religion. The exact phrase ‘separation of Church and State’ came out of Adolph Hitler’s mouth, that’s where it comes from. Next time your liberal friends talk about the separation of Church and State ask them why they’re Nazis.”
