When you say 'god', which one are you referring to?
I'm not saying let's kill all the stupid people, I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.
However, outside of these two court cases, the idea of separation between church and state is merely philosophical. Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter in 1802 to the Danbury Baptist Association over concerns that the Connecticut government did not guarantee religious freedom as a right. In his letter, Jefferson, being the state's rights ideologue he was ignored the limits imposed by Connecticut, but did affirm that on the national level, there should be a "wall of separation".
Now, being the Conservative Rick Santorum is, I find it odd that he would disregard such a timeless philosophy of one of the greatest founding fathers. I guess Santorum sympathizes more with Alexander Hamilton rather than Jefferson.
