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.

To prevent someones religious beliefs from influencing their political beliefs, is impossible.
Funny how Christianity is in direct line with the constitution.
