Has separation of church and state preserved the church in the Unites States?

Question by mugfullo2: Has separation of church and state preserved the church in the Unites States?
In many countries in Europe, the Church is in some way regulated by the state, or vice versa (Sweden, the king must be protestant, England, Lords Spiritual, Germany, a church tax). Do you think that there is more cynicism towards the church in these countries because they are part of the government?

All opinions welcome! Thanks!!

NOTE: I concede that in the US the church and state are not entirely separate. I am looking for opinions about the church in other countries compared to here. Thank you in advance!

Yes, the government thinks only about itself, if it controls the church it only wants to use it towards furthering it’s own agenda and not Gods.
