NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
On Oct. 19, Philip Granato again failed to tell us where in the U.S. Constitution the word “God” is mentioned (letter to the editor).
Instead, Granato cites the case of Church of the Holy Trinity vs. U.S. While the case was not specifically about religion, the decision was in order to show that Congress could not have intended to prohibit the employment of ministers from foreign countries.
This case is cited most often in legal cases on how legislative intent can be determined as a “prototypical case” in which a judge follows the intent of the legislature rather than the text of the statute.
Granato conveniently fails to mention The Treaty of Tripoli which was signed by President Adams and unanimously confirmed by the Senate in 1797. Article 11 states, “As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion ...”
Granato cites Kevin A. Lehmann as an expert on this subject. An investigation of Kevin A. Lehmann’s website shows pictures of President Obama in a Nazi uniform. Lehmann’s profile describes himself as a marketing maverick who lost a $7 million case against the IRS.
Lehmann mentions nothing about any higher education or anything about divinity studies. He does however lay claim to being a talk show host in Fort Myers, Fla.
The only thing worse than not having credible references and quotes is having vacuous sources.
