Answer: There is NO separation of church and state in the constitution or bill of rights.
What people usually refer to is the "establishment clause" and contorting that to the position that there is a separation of church and state is a perversion of the original intent.
The "beef" is the power of the Supreme Court and the agencies that enforce "their" interpretations of the court rulings. You have no "beef" with me. I certainly believe in the concept of our religious roots and the freedoms to believe and express any of those beliefs.
