Christine O'Donnell, Delaware GOP candidate for the Senate, yesterday startled a Widener law school audience by frankly asking where in the constitution is the separation of church and state?
The Tea Party candidate inspired horrified gasps and laughter from the law school audience as it became apparent she appeared not to know that the First Amendment calls for barring the government from establishing religion.
When her Democratic opponent Chris Coons responded that the First Amendment bars Congress from making laws respecting the establishment of religion, O'Donnell asked: "You're telling me that's in the First Amendment?"
