The idea that government shall favor no religion for another or make no law that is bias toward one religion and not another.
What it does not say is that elected officials can not be religious. It says they should make no law that favors religion or display favoritism in a public government institution.
Putting a cross in the back of your office is fine, displaying a statue of the ten commandments in front of a court house is not.
What? Can't buy beer on Sundays in some states, that violates separation of Church and State.
What? "In God We Trust" on coinage, the government is favoring Christianity over other religions. I feel this violates separation of church and state. I shouldn't have to be preached inside of a court house or inside of a school. If I want to hear preaching, I could go to church or temple or a mosque or whatever else their is.
