It doesn’t take much to send the Borg-like collective known as the modern American left into a frenzy these days. On Saturday, First Lady Melania Trump opened her husband’s rally by reciting the Lord’s Prayer. Attendees at the rally loved it, but liberals went ballistic and accused her of violating the First Amendment.
She began by asking the thousands of people at the rally to “let us pray.”
Here’s the video:
Here’s how the anti-Christian left responded:
Is Melania "refreshing" because she modeled? Because she's white? Or because she violates the separation of church and state?

Pathetic. Playing to the lowest common denominator.

Naturally, several astute Twitter users adequately summed up the left:

Melania recites the Lord's Prayer and liberals are shouting Church and State, just shut up already, you are making fools out of yourselves.

Supporters, however, were happy that Melania opened with prayer:

Of course, this pretty much tells you everything you need to know about the differences between the two sides.
A post at BizPac Review attempted to educate liberals about the Establishment Clause, but somehow I don’t think it’ll much matter to those who refuse to be educated:
The clause in the Constitution you are referring to is the “Establishment clause” and it reads as follows:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
Melania Trump is not Congress nor did she create a law establishing an official state religion.
People are probably confused because progressives have stretched this clause to the breaking point to eliminate the mention of God from any publicly funded venue.
And even if one wants to stretch the clause some more there are some things to note.
Mrs. Trump is a private citizen and not a government employee.
Scratch a liberal, find a Christophobic hatemonger…
