Question by Anonymous: What ever happened to seperation of church and state here in America?
Remember the old foundation that America was built on using a seperation between the church and state? With abortion laws, death sentences, war, marijuana legalization, etc, most of these controversies seem to have the church at one side and peoples’ own choices at another. Why can’t we base these decisions on state and the choice’s of the citizen rather than a religion?
In case anyone is seeing this differently than what i’m actually asking, I’m wondering why, for example, the government would completely illegalize abortion because the Catholic Church etc says its immoral. Shouldn’t it be legal, but be in the citizen’s choice as to do it or not?

This congregation was founded by Roger Williams After being booted out of Massachusetts, he established Rhode Island as the first place in America with true religious tolerance. Quakers, Jews, even (gasp) that radical antinomian feminist Ann Hutchinson showed up soon after.
Roger Williams respected Native Americans, learned the Narragansett language. Didn’t try to cheat them or oppress them. Thus Rhode Island was spared the revenge wreaked elsewhere during King Phillip’s War..
This booklet refutes the Baptist Bride, Landmarkism and Baptist Church succession theory and gives many historical references to prove that Roger Williams did start the first Baptist Church in America. Williams was also the leader in making slavery illegal in America, establishing the separation of Church and state, and establishing freedom of religion.

Question by : Doesn’t the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, and the Episcopal Church have close ties?
I’m Christian, and I go to an Episcopal Church and I was wondering don’t these two churches have close ties, and why is there such warmth and comfort during greetings with probably one congregation and another. Does the relationship with the Episcopal Churches and others go back a long time?
Answer by Krunkett P. Willakarthey, III No, not especially so. The Episcopalians were started in England, whereas the Lutheran Church in America has it roots to Scandinavia. Both are Christian Churches, and fine organizations, for sure.
