Throughout the years, the United States Senate has honored the historic separation of Church and State, but not the separation of God and State. . . . During the past two hundred and seven years, all sessions of the Senate have been opened with prayer, strongly affirming the Senate's faith in God as Sovereign Lord of our Nation. . . . Chaplain Black's days are filled with meeting Senators about spiritual and moral issues, assisting Senators' staffs with research on theological and biblical questions, teaching Senate Bible study groups, encouraging such groups as the weekly Senate Prayer Breakfast, and facilitating discussion and reflection small groups among Senators and staff.

Words fail me. No, wait, here they are: what the FUCK? What the fuckity fuck fuck kind of theocracy did America become while I was busy watching paintball on ESPN2? The Senate does not honor "the separation of God and State?" Senators' taxpayer-fed staffs are conducting research on theological and biblical questions?! Can we all just move into the Creationism Museum now?
