An article by Tara Ross at DoubleThink magazine is a very revealing look into the history of the mixing of church and politics, and the misnomer of "separation of church and state".  From Thomas Jefferson’s mistaken view of the matter to how unintended consequences from a Lyndon Johnson decision introduced the idea that politics and the pulpit don’t mix, this is a good history lesson for those that think things were always this way.

They weren’t.
