God On Our Side

Moreover, when we claim God's mandate for a political position, an economic policy or a war, we are being deeply disrespectful of anyone who holds a differing opinion or hears a different voice. We verge on violating one of the fundamental principles in the Bill of Rights: freedom of religion. There's a thin line between claiming God's support and outlawing other Gods or interpretations. Our Constitution separates Church and State because the Founders had direct, unhappy experience with the oppression and persecution a state religion wields against dissenters.
