I've had a hard time discussing the importance of the separation of church and state with other Christians. I understand that keeping the two separate protects my right to worship as I see fit -- protects it from other Christians who would have their interpretation of faith, which I may or may not agree with, passed into law. What they fail to grasp is that freedom of religion necessarily includes a freedom FROM religion. I would love to hear a level headed, well reasoned argument supporting the concept of freedom from religion as inherent in the Bill of Rights.
