Sermonizing from the statehouse #doingitwrong

From Raw Story: Governor tells Iowans to ‘repent’ in official proclamation for Christian revival at Capitol

This is not how the freedom of religion in the first amendment is supposed to work. When the governor of a state is essentially sermonizing in his role as governor, the wall between church and state has crumbled to dust. We don’t have to like or approve of of the 47% of Iowans who aren’t religious, but their religious freedom absolutely includes not being preached to by any faith from the halls of power.
