Separation of church and state in the U.S.

Very influential op-ed piece that John Danforth wrote for the New York Times this past week, which should be read by anyone interested in the growing power of Christian conservatives in the U.S. Danforth, former U.S. Senator and an Episcopal minister, points out all of the policy areas where these conservatives are harmfully affecting public policy such as stem cell research. Reassuring to see such an influential Republican speak out in favour of the separation of church and state and hope to see more of this.
