No government system in which God is kept out of it because of "separation of church and state" can be perfect.

My thinking on the separation of church and state was merely that our forefathers did not want to be like England and Spain of that time, where they were ruled by the Anglican and Roman Catholic churches respectively. I do not believe that when the pledge of allegiance was written and "under God" inserted therein, that it would be considered a breach of the church and state provision of the Constitution. I think some of your atheist people in this country want to have someone arrested just for saying, "God!" when they are disgusted about something.

P.S. You deflected your response in another thread, so now this is my turn to return the favor. :)
