We in America Need *Less* "Religion" "in the Public Square"

A certain extreme-right  presidential candidate who's most famous for having a surname that's become not safe for work, was given airtime on major TV on Sunday where he ranted about the US separation of church and state, and implying how that policy has relegated religion away from "the public square."

It's nonsense of course.   In fact, there's too much "religion" in the sense of blind faith in the public square.

Not enough science, history, and facts-based decision making on behalf of the people.  In fact, there's lots of "religious" thinking in the public square, but far, far too little ethics.
