A few days ago, someone called my office and left an anonymous message that indicated that I should practice the separation of church and state. While, when I wrote my article, I did not have the luxury of writing under the cloak of anonymity, I did so as a concerned citizen, not as the “Good Reverend,” as I have been dubbed. The church had nothing to do with my personal opinion. I had not discussed local politics over the pulpit. Therefore, my congregants had no inkling what I was thinking or, even the fact, that I was writing an article.
