Do you believe there is a true separation between church and state?

Not in Utah! Religion affects law there.

Not with the govt dictating that personal faith convictions can be overridden by aspects of legislation.

As a Christian - I agree there is separation and I agree it should be more. In recent years I believe the line is somewhat blurred. I think it's somewhat more balanced under Obama but not enough. One man's view.

I believe there should be, but it doesn't exist.

That's impossible.Church is a people. Unless u get people or certain people out of the state...In the original letter's context was separation of denomination and state&even one way meaning the state could not dictate the what the church stood 4.

No, not fully. There should be more separation than there is now, IMO.

I don't believe they are separate at all and it causes quite a few political problems. I wonder how much more functional government might be if there was more separation. I'm not that day will ever come though.
