Religion & State Separation

Whether one opposes or supports little or no interaction between religious tenants and government policies in public society. In other words, religion has no place in government. And government has no place in religion.

    I call for a complete separation of church and state including the removal or references of 'God' from the currency and all mottos. The practice of daily invocations in congress should be stopped.

    The Judeo-Christian belief, the Bible, has always guided this country. And it must remain that way. I have read many of our founding fathers' writings on this issue, and I will defend its association with the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. Religion and our Republic form of gov't must remain together.

    The issue one runs across for those who wish to include religion in government is the insistence that it is only their own religion which will be included. This in turn breeds heresy, and eventual imposition of dogma through the government. The only way to secure all religious faith and freedom is to keep them safely away from the public space and governance.

    We need more Christians in elected office as they tend to improve the level of virtue among our elected officials. There is no such thing in the Constitution as Separation of Church and State. The intent was the refusal to have one "sect" as a national religion.
