Entertain yourself and do keyword search on this site, like "religious test for public office", "proposition 8", "creationism", "intelligent design", "boy scout", "under god", etc. You'll be amazed on how much work there is to do in removing bad laws that have successfully gotten pushed into our legislation by religious movements.
Yeah, I know, contesting things like "under god" from the Pledge of Allegiance may sound petty. But, then in the uprising of fundamentalist movements, I feel that separation of church and state even at psychological level does have merit. I remember one gentleman in our meetup long ago argued that "USA is a nation under God"; to which I immediately said "That's what a lot of people think and that must be fixed!". :)
Thanks for coming to the lively discussion tonight. I had fun!
