    The separation of church and state exists for a reason. Regardless of our beliefs it is where we get the basis of morales for daily life. Before we ever started building Mosques, Synagogue's, or churchs we prayed individually when, where, and how we wanted. When religion becomes all encompassing it becomes law to extreme given time and unchecked. Buildings and segragation are of mans creation not Gods. Not to mention Interpretation is exactly that someone elses opinion of a topic. If someone cannot be excepted for where they pray and/or observe by those that share the same beliefs the true nature of religion (IMO) to love on another has already been lost. If we cannot walk side by side how can we ever be united together? United doesn't mean a single part of our lives but as many aspects of our lives that we want to share with others. The more we share ourselves the more we have in common with those around us. In an every shrinking world if we don't learn how to coexist (in every matter) we will cease to exist. Our advisaries should never be from within.
