The only reason I can see for opposition to the concept of separation of church and state is the desire to impose the opponent's religious beliefs on society. What supporters of this desire to establish such precepts seem to forget is that the authority that establishes them can at any time just as easily establish the tenets of any other religion in it's place.

"It is always to be taken for granted, that those who oppose an equality of rights never mean the exclusion should take place on themselves." -- Thomas Paine: Dissertations on First Principles of Government (July 7, 1795)
