Imagine government without religion!

One version of the John Lennon  song “Imagine” contains the words “Imagine no religion” (not always heard in the States).

In President Obama’s speech in Cario, he recalled the Treaty of Tripoly  -in which the founders stated that the US was NOT a Christian nation, although he didn’t specifically mention that.  In this speech, he not only repudiated the Bush Crusade paradigim,  he also stated that we will respect the rights of Islam – and implicitly others – to practice their own beliefs,  independent of  our policies: that is separating religion (church),  from politics (state).

One large step toward reconciliation, one small step toward separation.
