It is mind-boggling that in this point of our history, people (and that includes those running for public office) still don't grasp the idea that we do not, and should not, have an established religion in this country. Why is it so hard for some people to accept and embrace the idea of religious freedom?Answer Question

I'm confused - we don't have an established religion. No one wants an established religion. I think everyone agrees we want the state out of religion. I do think that those who we put in the offices to run our gov. should have some form of religion in their lives. I don't care which one you choose. Be a Buddhist, but show that you have a belief in something which is your moral compass and where you obtained your values from. That is the whole thing. Freedom OF religion and not from religion.

Sometimes it goes back to the idea that the interpretation is to keep government out of religion but that it does not apply to religions involvement in government. For a research project I attended a service at a local Evangelical church, the message for that day: We (the members) MUST take their places in any and all forms of government to remove the evil influence now present and return us to the Godly ways of our forefathers. Very scary presentation, including tips on how to do it.
