Religion and Government: Should They Mix?

Religion and Government: Should They Mix?

by Karen Judson




Nowwhere in the U. S. Constitution is there a phrase, "the separation of church and state,"but the question of Religion and Government: Should They Mix? has been upon us almost from the beginning of U. S. history. Karen Judson discusses how the argument arose, the philosophies held by those who believe religion has an important part in government and those who feel it should have no part, and how our attitudes toward religion and government affect how we deal with the other nations of the world.
