Separation of church and state

Daily Item

---- — Mr. Harold Lerch Sr., in a letter published on 2/5/13, stated: "Separation of church and state is separating us from God, for certain."

Does he not realize that the Taliban, al Qaeda, and other religious zealots believe the same thing. Surely Mr. Lerch is not on the same side of the argument as the people in those organizations. Or maybe he is. In which case I declare that he is on the wrong side. His view on this is frightening, contrary to our Constitution, and simply unsupported by any facts.
