I don't want to go back to the stone ages
Option 3 is my choice
Alot, secular decisions based on morality will reflect in the people that follow the law
Religion is fine, but should be used minimally in secular decisions
Religion should be strictly controled/banned
Cardinal Rouen observing to me that the Italians did not understand war, I replied to him that the French did not understand statecraft, meaning that otherwise they would not have allowed the Church to reach such greatness.-Niccolo Machiavelli

This is a very difficult one as I don't think people should be excluded from anything for their beliefs. If a politician says that they are a certain religion but their behavior doesn't follow that religions teaching, then what am I to think about that politician. What exactly are they true to? At least if they are true to something and I'm against it, everyone is being honest.
Actually, if memory serves me right, Separation of Church and State didn't start like that. Also, you should know the term is nowhere in the constitution. If I recall Jefferson coined the concept "Separation of Church and State" in a letter to a church to assure them the government would not step into their affairs. The entire concept was to foremost protect the church from the government, of course it goes both ways down the line. Of course the entire subject is a matter of debate.Separation of Church and State was supposed to allow no one religion to force it's religious views through government, not that religion should not exist in government.
