A couple days ago, Tall Tales talk show host, Bob Klitzkie, gave a "class" on the so-called "separation of church and state."  

I say "so-called" because there is no such phrase in the U.S. Constitution, but it has come to be thought of as such, and Bob explains a bit how this happened. 

The "separation" issue is one I often engage, and in 2011 I wrote a column for the Umatuna, the then-newspaper for the Archdiocese of Agana, in an attempt to set the record straight on this "separation" thing and for the intelligent people who cared...much as Bob is trying to do now. 

Here's the 2011 column:

The Wall of Separation; Published in the Umatuna 7/5/2011

Note: the article was one of several published in the Umatuna from 2011 to 2013 under the weekly column heading "VIEW FROM THE PEW." All of the columns for that period can be accessed here
