Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of an established religion tends to make the clergy unresponsive to their own people and leads to corruption within the religion itself. Erecting the ‘wall of separation’ between church and state, therefore is absolutely essential in a free society.
