We have all talked about this before. Many people have brought up the fact that we are gaurenteed freedom OF religion and not FROM.
We all know that most people are comfortable with the idea of a government that not really that seperated from the Christian religion. We just accept that all government businesses, schools, banks and whatnot will be closed for Christmas & Easter. We see it as the norm that the pledge says "under God." And the 10 comandments are EVERYWHERE!! There are many people that see the seperation of Chruch and state as a negative action.
So, here's my question. What if for whatever reason, our government was no longger based on CHRISTIAN beliefs & traditions? What if it was now based on Islamic, Wiccan, Voodoon or any other non-Christian belief system? Would you be as ready to accept the current relationship between the two then? Would you want more seperation?

What makes Christianity so unique is that no matter the dominant religion we always strive and prosper, so it really would not make a difference.
