There Is No Constitutional Separation Between Church And State

A theocracy IS a religion, a state or a government run by a religion, where only one religion is allowed. Saudi Arabia is run as a theocracy. Iran is run as a theocracy.

The problem is not simply Islam but Sharia and the imposition of an Islamic theocracy. Many small areas of the U.K. and Europe are now de-facto Islamic theocracies, patrolled by squads of fundamentalists who chase away non-believers and who impose Sharia on residents by intimidation.

Next, there is no Constitutional separation between church and state. No such distinction exists in the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights, that concept was embroidered from a letter than Thomas Jefferson wrote. A plain reading of the Constitution should reveal that to any fair minded person. The United States is by design a secular state, but one that was influenced and informed by the colonists and the founder's religious values.

In the United States we have Freedom OF Religion, not freedom FROM Religion. Every one of the United States colonies were founded by religious believers, so the founders expected the new American people to be religious and to have their way of life and their government to be informed by their religious values. The founder's language was filled with non-denominational religious phrases, as were those of one President after another.

The answer to the challenge of Islamism is not atheism, but good religion. You do not triumph over those who fervently believe in something by believing in nothing. Fundementalist Muslims should not be allowed to immigrate to the United States, not because they are Muslim, but because they want to supplant our Constitution and method of governenance with the Koran and Sharia Law.
