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 circumstances of the world are continually changing, and the opinions of man change also; and as government is for the living, and not for the dead, it is the living only that has any right in it." -- Thomas Paine: Rights of Man (1791)
