    Roy Moore’s campaign spokesman says Muslims shouldn’t be in US Congress because they have to swear on the Bible. He responds with silence, mouth agape, when @jaketapper informs him that’s not the case http://cnn.it/2nViCGP

    Why do you think the puritans came here to get rid of the Church of England ruling over them. Freedom of Religion equates to Separation of Church and State.
