Barbara McGraw on Religion in America - A Pagan's Blog:
In a lively talk McGraw explained that neither the religious right nor the secular left really understands the Founders' thinking on church and state.

This is why both sides throw quotations around so freely, quotations that seem to contradict one another. They ignore the context of the quotations they sling about. As she put it, both sides 'are half right and half wrong.'
