I accept that Church and State should be separated. However, ignorance is a better word than idiot to describe people who believe otherwise. Church and State if combined would be a serious problem because of different interpretations of the bible.
I was foreshadowing this argument: Most people do understand the separation of church and state, but they are too IGNORANT to accept this as another point of view. Therefore they are not idiots, just too IGNORANT to accept it. The separation of church and state was created to allow anyone and everyone to keep to their morals and to believe what their religion is. But really the people who you say are idiots are actually following this law by sticking to their morals and believing what they think to be true. This is what the law was made for, to give moral/religious freedom to all.
