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.

"The genius of the Constitution rests not in any static meaning it might have had in a world that is dead and gone, but in the adaptability of its great principles to cope with current problems and current needs." -- Justice William Brennan: Speech to the Text and Teaching Symposium at Georgetown University (October 12, 1985)
