What role should religion play in government? As you develop your argument, think about the following questions: What do supporters of religion in government (accommodationists) value? How do they view the world? What about those who believe in the separation of church and state (separationists)? Why do they disagree so strongly with the accommodationists? Why might separationists who also happen to be religious believe in the separation of church and state? How can we rectify the fact that America is a religious nation, but one in which religion plays a limited role in government? Do we need to? Question #1 Religion shouldn't play any role in the government as religion stands first in dividing the world into different parts. Most of the wars during the medieval period and terrorism today have their roots in religion. Religion has a very stereotypical view on other people. So, in a state where people of all religions live in peace and harmony, religions will cause only pain and discrimination.
