The Separation of Church and State

Let me make it clear, this is not about religion in a spiritual sense. It has nothing directly to do with Christianity, Islam,Buddhists or Ghia.It is about trying to define what is "Church" and what is "State" putting aside thereligiosity. In some ways thisseparationis more commonly recognized as beliefs, daily rituals, morality and your associations with other, compared to how and by which means you enact your day to day life within a system commonly agreedupon.

People are naturally drawn to each other based on common ideas,environments, challenges and understandings. This to me is "the Church". Together they buildinfrastructure, laws, processes of dispute resolution, common or publicly recognized institutions. This is the "State".

To put it simply, the Church is the hearts and minds, what ever that may be, the State the walls anddefensive's. This distinction is the important principal between Church and State. It does not matter what religious beliefs any society takes part in or what Church they build. It matters not the rituals, dates of celebration or distinctions between any man or any woman.

The "Church" must build it's walls strong, without sentiment, without empathy, for it to survive. For if they do not, commonly held ideas, a way of life, our essence will beeliminated. That is the end of the State!

The State and the Church are both held together and torn apart in unison.


For those who are unfamiliar with Ghia.
