We solved our conflicts between society and religion with separation of church and state pretty much 2000 years ago.

Susan, what separation of church and state has brought is overall decline in moral values in all affairs of human life.

May it be living together, gay/lesbians, destruction of marriage institution and family system.

Or may it be decline of economic moralities through interest based economy.

Or may it be invading other countries for past 300 years for resources (from east India company to US/UK led war in Iraq).
