I am a religious person, but I am not in favor of doing anything that abrogates the separation of church and state. When I walk into a government building I expect not to be hammered with religious items or paraphenalia.
When we do what we can to promote equality we are a stronger nation. It is fine to have faith and there are many good people who do. But it is important for all citizens to feel like they are part of one nation, no one should feel disenfranchised because of religion.
You can tell a lot about society about how it treat it’s minorities.
