Religion cannot help but influence governments because our Creator permits no “Separation of Church and State” in the human heart.  I cannot imagine this is unintentional.  God crafted our crucibles.  He ordained that our conflicts of conscience be solved by moral beings whom He affords the liberty and responsibility of free will.

So, Dear Citizen, wrestle with God.  But don’t be surprised if, like Jacob, you walk away with a limp.

Genesis 32: 24-32
