Without God there would be no freedom to believe what you want.

But today, government is taking those rights from us, pretending that it gives us our rights. Indeed, those rights come from God, and it was recognized throughout our history as such.
If they want to get [my statue of] the Commandments, they're going to have to get me first.
Worship With Your Vote.
It can have a secular purpose and have a relationship to God because God was presumed to be both over the state and the church, and separation of church and state was never meant to separate God from government.
You wonder why we're having shootings and killings here in 2017? Because we've asked for it. We've taken prayer out of school.

The Church's role should be separated from the state's role.
That's not the federal law. What you're confusing is law with the opinion of a justice, what one lone federal judge says is not law.
