Separation of Church and State?


Separation of Church and State is a hot topic currently, but to me, the trend seems to focus on things like the Pledge of Allegiance or the Ten Commandments in public buildings, yet religious state laws, like alcohol on Sundays, for instance, are rarely mentioned or changed. It seems the politics of separation are a diversion from the actual meaning of the concept. Are Gideon Bibles in hotel rooms really more unconstitutional than "blue" laws?

    Odd how the perception of hx has changed over the years. Churches should lose their free status. they are no more than business today that rake in huge profits, pay no taxes, and expect representation in D.C.

    I have always thought that the purpose of the founding fathers was to allow people to have freedom of choice in their religion, the idea that they were anti-religion is a new one on me.
