The Narrative Wars

EP4: Can We Really Have ‘Separation of Church and State’?

May 30, 2020

Shortly after America was birthed, a question came out of a Connecticut church concerning their religious liberty. Troubled that the state might tell them to stop meeting, Thomas Jefferson famously penned a response to the young church, informing them that the freedom to speak and assemble also included the right to assemble as a religious group. From there, the idea of "separation of church and state" was born.

And with it, a host of narratives have emerged around the topic. What does it mean? What was the reasoning behind it? Is it even in the Constitution? This week's Narrative Wars deals with the old saying, "Separation of Church and State" and how it affects us here in America.
