Doug Mataconis held a B.A. in Political Science from Rutgers University and J.D. from George Mason University School of Law. He joined the staff of OTB in May 2010 and contributed a staggering 16,483 posts before his retirement in January 2020. He passed far too young in July 2021.
Nothing unusual about that Doug. I am however, wondering why you as a attorney do not think it is worth writing about the fact a federal agency has been directed by our chief executive to reach out to a religious sect. Now my reading of the 1st amendment indicates congress is precluded from the establishment of a religion. That, however is not how it has been interpreted by those who wish to attach Christianity. They call it separation of church and state. NASA being state and Islam, being chruch. How come no one is calling this administration on its violation of the 1st Amendment? I guess laws do not apply to Obama.
Zelsdorf: It’s not a constitutional violation. The State is not required to pretend there’s no such thing as Religion. It is only required to promote one to the detriment of others or to otherwise show favoritism. Trying to get Muslims to understand the US is a worthy goal for any administration and a pretty good use of tax dollars, IMO.

Those that want to be free, already understand America. Those that want to enslave others to a religion built on the terror of the sword will never understand.
