(For a more comprehensive explanation of my thesis, see my “On Separation Of Church And State,” posted to this blog below)
The fauna of human doctrines is inestimably immense, and is given to an equally incalculable sum of peculiar modifications. Thus, neutrality is an impossible standard. It can be expected, then, that the establishment of any institution necessarily imposes the doctrines of some number upon the whole. The moment an institution exists, it does so contrary the tenets of some existing faction, and that with no exception to governance. For the state’s very being contravenes the ideological code of those who would call themselves anarchists, (insofar as the term is applied by the colloquial tongue); and, therefore, it lies beyond man’s capabilities to divorce government from ideology. It is for this reason that the modern interpretation is emphatically flawed, which necessarily confounds Separation of Church and State, with separation of belief and state. The latter is impracticable.
