What were the founders thinking when they restricted separation of church and state to the federal government? Mr. Anon (talk) 01:43, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

A world where public education didnt exist like it does now and science and religion weren't in full conflict . --il'Dictator Mikal 01:45, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
Well the founders obviously had their senses when it came to religion and the government; the First Amendment guarantees separation of church and state in the federal government and has always been interpreted as such. The other bills of rights were interpreted as only applying to the federal government, even though they didn't specifically say so. As a result, when the 14th amendment was passed, the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th amendments were able to be incorporated fairly easily by the courts.

Illustration[edit]

This would be a nice illustration for the article (doesn't link to its original appearance). Anyone who knows if it can be used, or how to get permission, or - for that matter - how to upload pictures properly? G.D. (talk) 00:22, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

"Why it Matters" is out of date[edit]

The section addresses events in 2014 in the future tense. I'm not knowledgeable enough about textbook economics to fix it, but someone ought to. Icestar1186 (talk) 06:12, 28 January 2017 (UTC)
