Robert P. George on the Separation of Church & State

Professor Robert P. George of Princeton University on the separation of Church and State:

Here’s my key take away from the video:

“In separating the institutions of the Church and the institutions of the State, there was never a thought, nor should we entertain the idea, that there is a separation of religion from public life or religion from politics. Our tradition in the United States is really quite the opposite. Religious people have always been involved in politics. Religious leaders have been leaders of important movements–the movement to abolish slavery, the movement against child labor and abusive and exploitative labor practices toward women, the movement to correct the great injustices of segregation. These were all led by religious people.”

We need not separate religion and public life to preserve the separation of Church and State. Click the link below for more information about Professor George’s work on this topic.
