Position Papers
Separation of Church and State, A Traditional American Value
The Separation of Church and State is underappreciated and misunderstood. America has avoided the Religious Wars of other nations and many different religions continue to live together in peace. Now the harmony and peace of society is threatened by the "pious coalition".
