A brief history of the wall of separation:
John F. Kennedy, 1960: The separation of church and state is absolute. My church will not dictate my policy decisions.
Mitt Romney 2008: The separation of church and state is relative. My church will dictate my policy decisions, but only to the extent that I will discriminate against the same people Christian conservatives would already be discriminating against anyway.
Rep. Bart Stupack 2009; The separation of church and state is a fairy tale. My church will show up at the Capitol steps in a limo to dictate policy.
