It is my understanding that “Separation of Church and State” is very important to the government. This phrase is NOT in the U.S. Constitution ( or the Bill of Rights: (
What is said is actually a law forbidding the Congress/government from ESTABLISHING a religion: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Well, it looks to me like Carver, Scott, and Hennepin Counties (and probably others) do not take this seriously; at least not in relation to their mental health professional services. In their DBT (Dialectic Behavioral Therapy) groups they promote and even require Buddhist meditation. They deny and even disregard any Christian influence. To me that is ESTABLISHING a religion!!!
This is our tax dollars at work – I don’t really like to see mine spent this way – how about you?
