How do we create laws to keep religion out of politics?


The Middle East is the most religion area in the world and even amount them, Turkey, have since WW1, outlaw religion influence upon the state, with a firm principle saying "religion and state must remain separate" in the west, the church continue to interfere with government policies. In the 70s in Europe, it was even in the law for unwed mother to have their child confiscated by the church and have the mother thrown in church prison for life, because unwed mother is a sin in the church. How do we create law to ensure, religion can stay out of politics?

    I think we should set a law saying to force your own religion law and view and to persuade others to force religion view or law upon others is illegal (just like racism) we don't want another religion extremist group, whether Muslim or Christian

    Well, at least we can do it during martial law. I don't know about the US, but many democracy follow ancient Rome, where during martial law, the President is the Emperor in dictatorship, until the Senate decide to abolish martial law

    You are correct. What we consider law in America is derived from the principles set forth in the KJV with the intent of maintaining a civilized society. I also agree that as long as people say someone else should do something, the government will.
