It appears that faith in God offends you.

You are by no means forced to read or comment on my thread. If you disagree you can go to a different thread.

They have a right to express there faith, but they do not have a right to infringe on the rights of others.

Unless you believe in the 'wrong' God, like Muslims do.

They have a right to express there faith in islam. And I have a right to express my faith in Jesus.

Jesus says that he is the only way, while Islam says Christians are unclean and to kill all infidels. Look at iran they kill our peaceful pastors all the time.

Anyways, this is not Iran. They are free to worship but not free to stone our peaceful missionary's.

Obviously someones political beliefs are going to be influenced by there religious beliefs, this is not designed to prevent that.
Yeah, that's plainly wrong.

The separation of church and state was introduced to reduce the influence of the church, more specific the catholic church, on the state. Back in middle age cardinals and bishops had political power and influence and (ab)used these, ignoring their theological duties, etc.
This goes all up to the pope and the bishops voting for the current "Kaiser" of the "Holy Roman empire" (which covered nearly all of middle europe).

Well, conflicts between the church and the nobles as well as a lot of angry peasents led slowly to a revolution of the system , seperating state and church, which lead to the church not possesing any real political influence. The laws to regulate these all came during 19th-20th century in most countries of the world, since the problem was global.
Seeing as you are from the USA, you got your separation 1791. The cause for yours: baptists not allowing believers of other religions to work in "their cities".

Another solution was found btw. in england, where the king simply founded his own church and made himself the head of it, disowning all members of the catholic church and removing all of their power. And when the parlament took over the power, state and church were separated.
