Call us sedan. Let's get started Bank of Clarke county is an equal housing lender. Member FDIC. Kimball. Hanan six fifty. Welcome back to Jim Bohannon show with our guest. Dr Richard Creighton, a Harvard, professor senior physician at the Massachusetts General Hospital and trained psychoanalyst. He's also author of the book out of control, gene calls in from Pittsburgh this evening to offer his thoughts on the subject, Katie K, a listener Hello Jean. Hey, jimbo. How are you? Fine. Thank you. All right. Greetings from Pittsburgh. So here's the question. We have a separation of church and state based on the constitutionality of not holding against somebody their race, religion or creed.
