  • America was never a Christian Nation.

    The founding fathers were very clear about church being separate from state.

    "Christianity is one of the most perverted systems of man I have ever seen"
    - Thomas Jefferson
    "Lighthouses are more useful than churches."
    - Benjamin Franklin

    "The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion."

    If America is a Christian nation, then there would be no freedom.

  • Yes, separate but free.

    Although America was founded by Christians, it was built on the basis that everyone should be for to worship who they please. England was a Catholic State at the time, and so Protestants wanted freedom, hence them came here. If America says that we should be only Christian, then we are no better then the people we were so desperately trying to escape.

  • Read any history book

    History is enough evidence to show that when these two bodies unite, discrimination , persecution , abuse and disaster are uninevitable. For this reason, the most wise and logical thing to do is keep them separated. Let's take a trip down memory lane, and remember how many wars religion have caused, and keeps causing.

  • Church and State SHOULD be separated.

    Religion itself is a sham, though everyone has the right to believe what they want, it should not be used as the basis of laws, not only because there are some many religions, but also because it hinders all progress (social, scientific, economic, etc). Forcing people to live in the stone age, stoning homosexuals and women who divorce is nonsensical. There is no religion higher than the truth, and a God, of any sort or name, is not truth.

  • Freedom to Pursue Happiness

    The most fundamental reason is to grant freedom of thought and belief to people. "The pursuit of happiness" as the Fathers of the Nation so succinctly and wisely put it, cannot freely occur if government is by the beliefs of others, no matter how tolerant. The horrible mess of the Middle East stands testament to the truth of this.

  • Absolutely! Religion and state should be separated!

    Religion is a freedom of self. It should be something personal, not something that controls a vast majority of population. Established laws can adapt overtime to suit the situation. However, divine laws CANNOT be challenged. A change in these rules would be breaking the law. Additionally, there are over 4200 religions in the world. No doubt there would be chaos to try to argue which religion is more divine.

  • Yes, Church and State Should be Separate.

    Although some people feel that mixing church with state will make our country a better and safer place, this is not necessarily true. If the two are mixed we are losing several of our freedoms. There will be more chaos and rebellions and I guarantee many innocent and unnecessary deaths.

  • Most Definitely !

    Well, OK, we're not Iran, but the constitution does have a theocratic structure. I think this holds us back, impedes us, like an old invisible injury. Like a subtle poison in the blood, it quietly harms us. Most people seem unaware of it. And I'm really, really sacred of fundamentalism.

  • Church morals should Over rule State

    The American country was founded upon religious liberty. The original thirteen colonies were not settled upon "Church and State" being separate. America was came to be known for Church and State being one. Now often people have argument is, "not everyone has the same religion." This is true but everything in the United States government says "In God We Trust." Of course this statement was based of the Christian God, not any other religion. In regards to Church and State being separate, it would serve no purpose to have it any other way besides Church And State being together. In response to what has been said on the other arguments, yes, the American society has been founded by religious liberty, but no religion on the face of the Earth has it been found to legalize abortion and any other murderous acts, such as capital punishment and other pointless items. To be clear the American government was founded for Christian religious freedoms, not any other, hence "In God We Trust, and God Bless America." It says "God" because it is the Christian God, and not Zeus, Hermes, or any other. The Government founded by Christians, as well as it should kept that way.

  • No, church and state shouldn't be separate

    Throughout the Bible God leads his people. In the Old Testament Moses is appointed by God to interfere with both the church and the government. Church and state should be leading in harmony but that doesn't mean certain rights should be removed from citizens. Everyone should still have their own decisions but only with God leading his people can a government stand for a prolonged time.

  • No.

    Do I ever miss the days when the Church controlled everything. If it wasn't for Luther and his attempt to hand the world over to the devil (which for the most part succeeded) we would still be living in a glorious theocracy to this day. Damnations be upon him for such a vile act.

  • Yes and no

    Our country was found on the principle that we could escape the Kings jurisdiction in whether or not we wanted to follow had to the Kingdoms set religion. Now say thing that, our forefathers did not separate the selves from religion. Often were there cabinet meeting held on bended knee to pray. Gorege Washington was recorded to praying before battle. Religious morals built this nations greatness. Removing all religion from state would one cripple our society. Government policies being change by religious beliefs are no more different than being changed my any group, faction, or movement. Removing religion from state is just silencing one of the latest group of people that make up this great nation.

  • There should be a fine mix

    That is all I have to say. SDIFGASDK FRASBYASK AIDVFA DF F F F F F F F F FF FF F F F F F F F F ASKF AD ZSFK AKF AD F KF SAJK F AFKF ASDJKF ASK AFK F AFK ADF ADK F ADF JA FA K
