Oh, I am not saying that the government should be able to dictate religion. That was stated in the article. Too many claim the specific words are in the constitution, but they are not. Freedom is explicit in our governmental founding, but it never said in exact words that there had to be a separation especially when someone is banned from praying or expressing their believes because it is a public sponsored event.
In regard to the other religious plaques, I really think there should be none present since we are not a religious state. I was just using that as an example and the fact that the wrong phrases are used by those who argue the point. They claim separation of church and state is guaranteed in the constitution but they need to use the freedom from government imposed religion instead.
