What government has the religious basis to righteously lead the people? Has any government found a way to tolerate all religions and lead the people with that in mind? Is the US a leader in this area?
I still believe that given the diverse religions in our country, religion and government must be separate. One cannot coexist with the other because we are not tolerant of the beliefs of others. Locke's philosophy on separation of church and state prevents injustices in the name of religion. I am thinking specifically of the Taliban at this minute. We are far from that form of government, but it is not beyond the realm of belief.
