Separation of Church and State

In a remarkable dialogue between various law professors, this interview takes up a commonly misunderstood issue:  the separation of church and state.  As we are all aware, this line has been used as an argument to eliminate the influence of faith-based organizations on the public sector.  However, as you will hear, modern interpretations do not necessarily reflect the true intention of the Constitution.

In the past posting, we heard about our responsibility, as Christians, to engage in political life for the sake of the common good.  This time, we hope to understand the boundaries of this involvement from the perspective of the government and those ensuring the equality of peoples and religion.

In an age of “tolerance”, join us as we ask ourselves what tolerance means in the United States regarding religious beliefs and the public expression of that religion.
