Separation of Church and state was meant so that the church could not interfere in the workings of government like in England--and is defined so differently now than it was once. Our country has lost it definition so uniquely put. Over the years we have grown into a selfish lot of "Me" or "I" and not what is best for a whole. It saddens me to say that we have also grown spiritually materialistic. We have lost the concept of the true meaning of heroes and how to stand united because we are divided into sub-cultures, and so forth. In our mundane lives we find it necessary to be more interested in the gruesomeness of a horrific traffic accident or glued to the television watching some horrible crime being committed --real and fantasy. Why?
