If that is so, then why does our money state "In God We Trust?" When we pledge our allegiance each morning in public school we do so acknowledging, "one nation under God." When the Supreme Court of the United States hears a case they do so in the shadow of a mural of the biblical figure of Moses. If you testify in court you will often be asked to place your hand on a Bible. And even when the American Colonies declared their independence from England they did so claiming that each person is, "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights..."
Recently however, Rhode Island has made national news with the so-called "prayer banner" in Cranston West and the World War I memorial cross on public land in Woonsocket.
If you have listened to any of the speeches from the either the Republican or the Democratic National Conventions you will hear references to God and faith over and over again... and yesterday Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan said he support organized prayer in Public Schools as long as the school agrees.
Where do you stand? Does the United States really have a separation of Church and State? Yes? No? Sort of...?
