    Total separation of church and state was considered the best safeguard for the health of each. As [President Andrew] Jackson explained, in refusing to name a fast day, he feared to "disturb the security which religion now enjoys in this country, in its complete separation from the political concerns of the General Government." (Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., American historian, The Age of Jackson, Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1945, p. 354. Schlesinger won the Pulitzer Prize for History for The Age of Jackson. Jackson's statement is from his letter to the General Synod of the Dutch Reformed Church, June 12, 1832, according to Schlesinger's footnote.

    It's about the church holding municipal power and the state creating a municipal church.

    It is not about religion per-se. It never was.

    Wants a nation to rededicate itself to God? Stop her now! She is dangerous!!!!!!!
    The lefty's I know do not appear to be afraid of Palin. I know the righty's keep saying that but I'm not so sure.

    They mostly find amusement in her as far as I can tell. Their posts seem to indicate that they are hopeful that she will actually be a conservative candidate in the future. How easy would that be?

    I think Palin is kinda cute. Would I do her in an igloo? You betcha!

    But I have a hunch that it won't be very long before Palin has her Tiger Wood's moment in the sun. Don't know why, just a hunch. But as long as she stays in her current novelty role, perhaps she will be able to fly under the radar screen. Time will tell.

    It is about state-sanctioned churches, but it's also about religion. Since it uses the word 'religion', it definitely covers religion and God.

    Nope, not at all.

    The people are free to be as religious as they please and pass "communal laws" as they wish.
