Two Christian sects. One holding a mass wedding (or vow renewal) ceremony in their church building...with newlyweds and audience clutching AR-15's. They will even quote biblical scripture indicating God wants them to support the 2nd amendment and Christians are to protect themselves with "rods of iron".
The other upset and angry because "We do not believe in guns in church. Not in our town". Some one has dared to have different religious beliefs than they do, and it must NOT be tolerated! A nearby school is closed and students moved to another facility during the religious church ceremony.
Will we ever learn?

Yes I do. I just found it comical, in a way, that a simple church service could be so hated, so disparaged...while some Americans advocate for religious controls. And a Christian sect, no less - I could see it more if it were Muslim, or Pagan or something quite different.

Does the use of "In God We Trust" on our currency violate the separation of church and state?"In God We Trust" wasn't always on U.S. currency. I believe it was put on coins in the 1860s and then later on paper money in the 1950s. From what I understand, court cases have already...

The USA is supposed to be a secular society, but the religion or faith of their politicians seems to be of upmost importance. Canada for example, is also a secular society, but their citizens don't care what faith their politicians practice. What happened to the separation of church and state?
