Line Between Church and State is Getting Blurry

Line between church and state is getting blurry

In this article from The Daily Item, we hear about the ACLU's position on the church-state issue. I do not agree with the ACLU on every issue (including their occasional defense of religion). However, this article makes me glad I decided to support them over the many other organizations who talk a good game but don't seem to actually do anything on the relevant issues.

My favorite quote from this article is this: "We have a president who was elected after stating the goal to essentially make his government serve his view of religion and morality." America is the only country in the world whose founding documents call for a clear separation of church and state. Sadly, we also appear to be the only Western country where such separation is under constant assault by Christian extremists.
