Allen West “Gov Walker, stand your ground, do not delete your religious tweet”

Written by Allen West

Well, here we go again, the oh so very tolerant secular humanist liberal progressives are showing their ignorance of America’s Judeo-Christian faith heritage. As reported in The Christian Post, “A Wisconsin-based atheist organization has demanded that Governor Scott Walker remove a posting on his Twitter feed that is religious in nature. The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) stated Tuesday that they took exception to Walker’s official account, including a tweet posted Sunday that simply read, “Philippians 4:13.” As rendered by the New King James Version, Philippians 4:13 states, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Based in Madison, FFRF sent a letter to the Wisconsin governor on Tuesday arguing that the tweet was a “misuse of gubernatorial and state of Wisconsin imprimatur.” Signed by FFRF co-presidents Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Barker, the letter expressed “dismay” over the tweet, which was also posted on Facebook. “This braggadocio verse coming from a public official is rather disturbing,” wrote Gaylor and Barker to Walker. “As governor, you took an oath of office to uphold the entirely godless and secular United States Constitution.”

It seems these two chuckleheads forgot the First Amendment right to Freedom of Religion and the free exercise thereof enshrined in the Constitution. I don’t see where Governor Scott Walker’s tweet was promoting any establishment of religion, just a simple profession of his faith — a faith shared by those men who wrote the Constitution.
