"I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute. Where no Catholic prelate would tell the President (should he be Catholic) how to act, and no Protestant minister would tell his parishioners for whom to vote. Where no church or church school is granted any public funds or political preference and where no man is denied public office merely because his religion differs from the President who might appoint him or the people who might elect him."
-John F. Kennedy
JFK may have been a imperfect person, but he there was a reason why he was a very respected president. Anybody with common sense can read human history in the European Middle Ages or a post-pagan Middle East and know for sure that religion and government do not mix well. The separation should be absolute. It pains me to see religious extremists impact laws and try to shove dogma into schools. That's not what America was based on.
