    The concept of separating church and state is credited to the writings of English philosopher John Locke. Locke argued that the government lacked authority in the realm of individual conscience, as this was something rational people could not cede to the government for it or others to control.

    Discuss your understanding of separation of church and state. Does freedom of religion include freedom FROM religion?
