Writer's Block: Church & State
Should church and state always be separate? Why or why not? What should the nature of their relationship be?
I'm bored, my alarm is gonna go off in about four hours, and I am not getting sleep tonight. Instead, I'm gonna eat these ramen noodles and write about...Church and State relationships.
As an American citizen, I think that church and state should always be separated. Otherwise, how could we be America? As for the whole "under God" and "In God We Trust" statements, I think that they should just be accepted. They were the original thing, they should stay, plain and simple. Our founding fathers decided what to put there, and at the time, Christianity was a dominant part of being an American. Most Americans were Christian and therefore went to Church and accepted these statements. Even if Christianity is not as widely accepted now as it was then, it really isn't right to have change anything. Don't like it? Don't say the pledge. That's your right. And the money? Don't spend any, crybaby. If you don't believe in God, what's it to you, besides a bunch of words? Exactly. Get over it. Then again, that argument can go both ways. If it's separated, then why even have it in the first place? But that just goes back to the fact that when it was made, that's what was accepted.
I don't feel like talking about this anymore. :D
