Comment 25 by AtheistEgbert : That is why I don't understand my fellow atheists who think that separating church and the state somehow solves the problem of religion, when the American form of secularism has made religion literally above the law, or that somehow secular politics is somehow good.

But the American form of secularism, from what I can see, is not actually secular at all, is it? God is on the money, in the pledge of allegience, the political events like this are like church events complete with hyms and prayers and testimony, and I gather the president talks about God in speeches. On what planet is that secularism? They're not even religious without being specific about which religion. It's all 100% Christian.
