Can we get church and state to co-exist?

Reader comment on item: Enforce Islamic Law in Canada?

The tension between church and state may be agravated by Moslems in specific circumstances, but it is noticable in most democracies as well as non democracies (Cuba, China, and others), and is not a settled matter among Jews in the Jewish state. Violence within Christianity or Islam is still with us, so it seems that the issue should be viewed in the wider rather than the narrower context.
