God wrote the U.S. Constitution?

I'll bet you thought that our Founding Fathers wrote the U.S. Constitution, didn't you? Nope. According to Tom DeLay, who was House Majority Leader during the Bush years, it was God.

Don't you remember that part about "Thou shalt have no other gods before me"? How about "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image"? No? Well, "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain" must be in there, don't you think?

How did we "allow our government to become a secular government" after 'God' wrote our Constitution? Gee, maybe he should have signed the thing. After all, the word 'God' isn't even in the Constitution.

Of course, it's full of those well-known "biblical principles" like democracy, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion. And it starts off just like the Bible does, with "We the people," huh? Heh, heh. Is there anything less biblical than that?

But DeLay is a right-wing Republican, so to him, reality is whatever he wants it to be.
