    Well, others would disagree.

    Then “others” would be wrong. The separation of church and state is not debatable.

Your posts, and those of others, are clear evidence.

    "I like your Christ but I don't like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ" Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi.
    I take it you missed the real story in the news article, about the Muslim woman who was pushing her religion and was offended when the Christian prayed in Jesus; name. Everything about the big event of that day was supposed to be the big news that a Muslim woman was coming to town. She was offended, as were many others (mostly democrats), because a Christian woman came along and rained on her parade by praying in Jesus' name. You should remember that it was the House leadership which asked the Christian woman to pray.

    This is an excerpt from Jefferson's famous letter to the Danbury Baptists,
    Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separation between Church & State. Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.

    I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection & blessing of the common father and creator of man, and tender you for yourselves & your religious association, assurances of my high respect & esteem.

    Th Jefferson
    Jan. 1. 1802.
    When a bill officially incorporating an Episcopal church in Washington, D.C., reached President James Madison's desk one day in February of 1811, he knew just what to do: reach for a veto pen.

    Madison was never one to tolerate any official ties between church and state. As he explained in a veto message to Congress, he rejected the church incorporation measure because it "exceeds the rightful authority to which governments are limited by the essential distinction between civil and religious functions."

    It "violates in particular," said Madison, "the article of the Constitution of the United States which declares that 'Congress shall make no law respecting a religious establishment.'"
    John Adams had a few choice words on the matter, as did Thomas Paine.
    “As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims],—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Mohammedan] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
    Paine said this,
    “One good schoolmaster is of more use than a hundred priests.”
    ― Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason

    Freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM. Let me save you time, and I mean this nicely, unless you are bored... don't worry about dissecting this for me, because I will disagree.
