  • 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.

  • 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.

  • It's just because

    I'm at work and I'm still waiting for you guys are have you ever heard the news media reports that a lot more to come go on the other side of the year before I go on the other side of the year best thing ever when you have no idea what to wear my a game

  • Yes it should be.

    Right now theocracy hasn't had a good rep. Countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Qatar, Emirates, North Korea and Pakistan. Historically we have Imperial Japan, Imperial Rome, Taliban Afghanistan and Ancient Egypt. A theocracy means no religious freedom as it is a form of authoritarianism, and a threat to freedom of speech.

  • Yes they need to be separate

    When it comes to church, there are usually some strict morals that a religion believes. A situation may need the government to choose to do something the church seems immoral such as dropping an atomic bomb like the ones during ww2. If the government was based on religion, then Truman probably wouldn't have dropped the atomic bombs which could have changed the course of the world.

  • Interpret the Constitution

    Whether you are a textualist, originalist, nonoriginalist, or moderate in between, the Constitution cannot be interpreted to allow for religion and state to mix. There will be situations where the state and church overlap in objectives, but that does not mean that the church should have influence. The God the framers were talking about was a Judeo Christian God, but one must understand that at that time, the only people entering this country were people who only knew of Christianity. To follow the framers' intent and text of the Constitution, it is very clear that this is a land built for the freedom to exercise religion without states establishing a set religion.

    Therefore, it does not matter if you are Buddhist, Muslim, Jewish, or Christian, you have the right to practice your religion and not be forced into rules that are set by one religion or a specific religious sect. So long as a private individual practicing his or her religion does not force others to comply against their will, there should be no conflict.

  • No Preferential Treatment

    America is not a Christian country, and it never was. It was built on freedom, and that includes the freedom to worship whatever you may please. To say otherwise goes against everything your country stands for. The fusion of the church and state would only lead to violence and hatred to anyone of different faiths. The USA has only gotten this far because our founding fathers stood for equality and fought against religious tyranny.

  • Yes it should

    Many may not support the separation between church and state saying that Christianity is what founded this nation. That could be If we are talking about 13 colonies belonging to the British Empire, whose king presided over an imperial church, then yes, British citizens residing in those colonies lived under Christian rule. It was one of the many reasons the pilgrims fled to america, for religious freedom. However with American independence, the British monarchy lost control over its American subjects. Champions of American liberty then celebrated their religious as well as political independence. Taking from British mistakes the founding fathers made it so the United States did not have a Christian nation. It was Thomas Jefferson to Joseph Priestley, Washington, March 21, 18011 that stated, “the Christian philosophy, the most sublime and benevolent, but most perverted system that ever shone on man, endeavored to crush your well earnt, & well deserved fame." ( (Others may say how the Constitution was based off the ten commandments. An obvious one being “thou shall not kill” as well as to thou shall not steal and has been said to some others but there is still a flaw. These particular actions was unacceptable long before the Ten Commandments were etched in stone.

  • Yes- Israel and Palestine

    As demonstrated in scenarios not just related to Christianity, the foundation of Zionism and the religious state of Israel has lead to significant turmoil in the area for the inhabitants who had previously inhabited the land, and were not Jewish. This is an example of an issue of why state shouldn't be religious.

  • 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
