Writer's Block: Church & State

Should church and state always be separate? Why or why not? What should the nature of their relationship be?

Yes I believe church and state should be separate. I don't agree with religion being shoved down people's throats, and I do not like being preached to. America was founded on being able to worship or not it's what's best for you. I believe that is the best way to do it.

Unfortunately religion is used too often in politics. I mean look what happened when those crazy Christians thought that Dubya was good enough to keep in office(I wonder how many of them are kicking themselves now,Still think he was a good choice??).
I am catholic but a very lapsed one. I just don't think that a book (that being the bible) should hold power over our governing body. I mean hell in all honesty do we know if anything in that book is true?? I mean they kinda left out dinosaurs and we have bones to prove they were here. For all I know people were smoking some good stuff and writing down random things that they were hallucinating.

As long as no one goes all fundamentalist/extreme right-wing, or French Revolution on our arses, yeah, I'd say church and state should definitely be separate.

I totally agree. Of course that may be because I'm not of any religion, and like you, I hate to be preached to.

Hi, I am 36 year old BBW from outside Chicago. I loooove makeup. I also love to tan, listen to music, watch movies, hang out, pretty much anything a normal person likes to do. (I have links to my different profiles listed below)

This used to just be my makeup journal, but I have since started using it more and more for everyday things. Face of the day's will still be done but not the ONLY thing posted here.
Any of my FOTD pics will be listed with FOTD tags.(so check the tags plz)

Icons I have made will have an icon tag as well as the movie or show I made them from.
I created my own icon journal for my icons but I will post links to them here. I have Friend locked some of my older Icon posts so all those icons that are locked can also be found at my icon journal.
