I look forward to this debate while I am not sure whether or not I'm arguing whether or not Church and State ought to be connected or whether or not we must make an amendment regarding it. I would appreciate some clarification, since your title is saying one thing but your first argument is saying another.
I will not say much, since my opponent forfeited his/her round. I just want to say that the first amendment separates Church and State. Any further separation would be anti-theism, since it would be restricting the rights of the Church.
