  • Obviously, it isn't a Christian nation

    America may have been founded by Christians, and there might be lots of them, but the church is outdated, the bible absolute BS and anyone supporting it are too dumb to think for themselves. I certainly don't want to live in a nation that believes rape is okay, that women should be subservient to men, that slavery is fine, and that racism is good

  • Because no one believes in the same god

    I'm 20 years old and church and state should stay separate because there are people who care about it then most think that church people will become bible thumpers which they can shove their bible up their ass and all the way up so the can preach more shit fuck Jesus no one needs him he is more of a devil then the devil himself

  • YES! Following Reasons:

    The reason for abstaining from placing religious symbols on public or government property, can be found in the United States' Constitution. Government preference or support for any one religion is prohibited, as stated in the Separation of Church and State doctrine established in 1947 by the United States Supreme Court. As found in the First Amendment, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." Our founding fathers specified that our government was not to partake in public religious support.

  • Religion Should Not be Forced in Government

    The United States government should maintain the separation of church and state to ensure the freedoms we now enjoy. The U.S. is a democracy, not a theocracy. In this wonderful melting pot that is America, no single religion should be given a preference over another when dealing with government intervention. Mosques, temples and churches should be allowed to coexist peacefully among the masses.

  • Essential.

    The separation of church and state is something all modern developed nations have, and for good reason. It is vital as it protects both the church and the state: it ensures religious freedom by ensuring there will never be a state religion, as well as protecting the integrity of the state by ensuring that state policy is not dictated by a church.

  • Yes, of course it should be.

    I can't believe this topic is even debatable. To combine religion with government is to impose a very particular set of views that may often be outdated, biased and ignorant. It's unconstitutional and it violates freedom of belief. The State should not impose restrictions on personal religious beliefs and Religion should not impose it's beliefs on the State.

  • The American Melting Pot

    Due to the fact that there are so many religions in our America, there can clearly be no one religion taking preference of any other. Plus, due to the multiple ways that each religion is viewed and interpreted, it would be impossible to make any sort of decisions. Everything would be jumbled and nothing would ever get accomplished. With that, and thanks to the HUGE human rights movements currently, there is no way that our government should push any one religion on Americans. That would cause such a major outbreak!

  • Yes church and state have no need to be connected

    Not everyone follows the same religion so why would you want to combine religion in any way with the government. Religion is a choice that some people choose to follow and needs to be kept completely separate from all forms of government. Anything else will become dangerous in the world.

  • Church and State Need To Stay Separate

    Church and state can't be intertwined because not everybody agrees with the rules of the church. People have a right to choose what they want to believe, and the churches idea's are often obsolete and obscure. How can we governed by doctrines that are thousands of years old. Whether you agree with the church or not, a theocracy is not a good government system.

  • Yes, the two should never mix

    Church and state are unrelated entities. One adheres directly to ones private life and one adheres directly to ones public life. Therefore, they should not be overly entwined at all. Also, the first ammendment states an idea of freedom of religion. Intertwining church and state means that the government would have the ability to regulate religion and make more rules on it. That prevents true freedom of religion and is therefore unconstitutional. One should not have religion imposed on them through the state, nor should the state be telling people how to practice their beliefs.

  • I absolutely believe that church and state should be united.

    Our country was founded on christian beliefs AKA religion and I believe that if you are an American you should support our youth learning more about those beliefs. I understand that there are multiple religions that are practiced in America and that people don't like the idea of their kids learning about a religion that is not their own. However, people should also understand that America does have a religion/belief set that it was founded on and still practices. Also, if nothing else, this will allow those who don't believe to better understand those who do. In other words it will help the kids learn!

  • I am completely against the separation of church and state

    This country was founded on religious beliefs and has strived in greatness through Christianity. Everything in this country from our money to our pledge has had God in it and should remain that way. From the time of our first president ( George Washington) there was a clear and evident belief in God through him praying before battles. The more this country clings to God or religion the better off it will be, because right now we are on a spiral downwards.

  • No absolutely not

    People who do not believe that there is a spiritual world are not thinking logically. Think about it, how could the universe just come into existence. That goes against the same science that atheists try to use to debunk the existence of God. How about instead of hating on religion and God you think logically and understand that our existence is impossible without a creator.

  • No Church and State shouldn't be separate.

    Goodness. No they shouldn't be separate. The state and government should go by God's laws for the states and country And do what is the right thing to do. If people don't want to live by God's laws because they don't believe in Him then they don't need to be in this nation. Our government is so scared of people going crazy they'd rather go against God. Yet they continue to stray away from God's word and allow this country to fall. The further this country gets from God the more it continues to fall and follow what Satan wants. Supporting things that go against God. What happened to One Nation Under God. When we stood for that this country was ahead of the rest. Now look at it. The whole family structure has fallen. How can you be so blind.

  • It is good for morality

    Religion basically teaches good, it is an important element in education for children, and inspires it's followers to do good. Yes, the Catholic Church trespassed the limit in the past, but it was also due to the greed and lack of education given to common people. If the Church had cared for their people (just like they do today) maybe we would still have theocracies today. Also, a State religion does not mean religious minorities are oppressed. It just means that a specific religion is promoted. And if you don't like your local state religion, you are free to go.

  • There should be unity between the church and government.

    I am not saying that the government should have the right to tell us how to believe or what to believe in but it should have some control in how religious orders are founded. This would stop those who would make a religion just to get away with certain immoral acts or that try to take advantage of others.
