Church and state ARE supposed to be separated. there are too many laws and references based on religion to have a well balanced society. I don't need to hear the President talking about God just like I don't need to hear about God from anyone else. The government IS a business, not a church. when you get a bunch of people making decisions based on their religious beliefs it always seems to end up not going so well.

people should be able to believe what they want,
but not in or bring it to office.

You are correct but also you're not looking beyond that. If our laws are based on religious doctrine or teachings, then where did those religions get those notions? Simple - MAN.
Common sense trumps all.
