Secular Government

I don't have the volume on, so I have no idea what's being said, but currently there's a discussion on CNN between the gruesome troll Cliff May and some guy from CAIR about "The New Iraq - Democracy vs. Theocracy." From what I can tell from the little captions, the issue is whether or not Iraq's government should be secular.

Now, I think Iraq's government should be secular. I also think the US government IS in theory secular, as defined by the constitution, and SHOULD BE in practice. But, we have prominent senators, an attorney general, a president, a Secretary of Education, and a Supreme Court justice who feel otherwise.

Can't we at least start owning up to this so we can talk about it?
