Romney says Church-State Separation has gone too far · September 04, 2012

The Republican presidential candidate has complained that the US founding fathers’ celebrated detachment of government from religious faith “has been taken by some well beyond its original meaning. They seek to remove from the public domain any acknowledgement of God,” said Mitt Romney, who is a devout Mormon. “Religion is seen as merely a private affair with no place in public life.”

Romney’s view is very close to the Roman Catholic view that America has become hostile toward religion. “The Founders proscribed the establishment of a state religion, but they did not countenance the elimination of religion from the public square,” said Romney. Joining the Roman Catholic Bishops, Romney has accused President Obama of “waging war on religion.”

“Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence and the third US president, said in 1802 that the Amendment meant “a wall of separation between Church and State.”

The U.S. Constitution’s first amendment was intended to create a neutrality of the state toward religion. The polarization of religion in American politics has created reactions. Would a president Romney go too far the other way and allow the Catholic Church even more influence in American politics perhaps to the point of a controlling interest?

“The Lord has a controversy with his professed people in these last days. In this controversy men in responsible positions… will not only ignore and despise the Sabbath themselves, but they will try to keep it from others by burying it beneath the rubbish of custom and tradition. In churches and in large gatherings in the open air, ministers will urge upon the people the necessity of keeping the first day of the week… The Lord will permit them to reveal what is in their hearts, to act out the spirit of the master that controls them. He will let them show their hatred of his law in their treatment of those who are loyal to its requirements. They will be actuated by the same spirit of religious frenzy that goaded on the mob that crucified Christ; church and State will be united in the same corrupt harmony.” Review and Herald, March 18, 1884
