In the US there is a mantra called "the separation of church and state". It allegedly is based upon clauses in the US Constitution such as these:
Article VI, Para.3
... no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ...
This "separation" was intended to protect us from religious persecution, but today it is used mainly to shield us from the very concept of G-d.
Even worse, the US Constitution does not separate America's one TRUE religion, business and commerce, from the state. In fact, the two are intertwined at a fundamental level, starting with the following provisions:
Article I, Section 8
The Congress shall have Power ...
3: To regulate Commerce ...
5: To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;
6: To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;
7: To establish Post Offices and post Roads;
8: To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries ...
In fact, one might argue that business and commerce (especially in the forms conducted by corporations) and the US government have become indistinguishable, and that sad fact indicates our form of government rightly should be called "fascism".
Whether or not you believe in the right to be free from religious interference in your life, I urge you to consider the importance of separating government from business and commerce. Failure to do so has put corporations like Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google more or less in control of our lives and our nation's future.
And their level of control is AT LEAST as great as the power of the Catholic Church at the height of the Inquisition, and it shows NO SIGN of waning. That cannot be a good thing.
