Separation of church and state

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood
in response to reader comment: Why don't we just give the USA to the Muslims?

I don't see the relevance of any of this anyways. Our country was founded upon the idea of separation of church and state. I think that everyone can find some sort of supporting evidence of religious danger and animosity if they try hard enough (recent Catholic history anyone??!!??) it is so easy to find what you want to hear and nobody ever said everything you read on the internet is correct!

Therefore, I still remain open-minded and I don't think it matters at all what Obama's religious background is. Again, our country was founded based upon freedom of religion and separation of church and state. In " God" we trust does not distinguish a particular god and the beautiful thing about our country is that it was founded to accomodate everyone. Lets get down to the REAL issues!!!!
