This is an issue that seems to be cropping up, as Senate leaders are holding political confrences in church and churchgoers are voting to ban gay marriage to protect their religious marital traditions. It is usually the secular scene you hear crying "seperation of church and state!" But does that mean that this seperation is to only protect the secular amongst us here in the US? I have read interviews from christians that disagree with the constitutional seperation, and have read interviews of christians that feel the seperation protects their church. Setting aside the fact that the seperation is a constitutional requirement for this country, do the christians (and others, of course) on this board think it should exist? Do you feel that some of your religious beliefs should be legislated, and which? Is it okay for politicians to hold televised (or other) political conferences in churches? Or you want to protect your church from government corruption that, for example, plagued the catholic chuch through it's history? Or is your answer somewhere inbetween? I'd like to know what you think.
