Separation of Mosque and State

Buona sera. OK, clever ones, tell me something. Why is it that we get uppity atheists and snotty "progressives" crying about the "separation of church and state" at the drop of a hat?

Yes, I like to digress on occasion. Here is a version of the piece that I received. Afterward, I will have some of my typically insightful comments for your enlightenment. Can a
