Can someone give me a list of countries that do not have separation of church and state.
do these countries have lower or higher crime rates? Are their governments considered more productive?
Are their court systems considered to be at a higher respect than the American Court systems.
**personally i don't think you can get much better than the American government. I enjoy our religious freedom**

I was born in England and now live in Canada. I have the freedom to be openly atheist without violent repercussions or being shunned by society. Many American atheists live in hiding and constant fear. If that is a free country, I'm not seeing it.

Article 19 of the Arkansas state constitution. Prohibits atheists from holding elected office or being sworn in as a witness in a court case (they are considered incompetent by the court). If anyone were to ever try to challenge it, it would be overturned by the SCOTUS, but until that happens, there it is.
