Greetings, We have all heard about separation of church and state in the States and how its enshrined in the Constitution. However if this is true why does almost every candidate have to do a declaration of faith that he/she is a true Christian. Take for example the case of former Sikh Namrata Randhawa aka Nikki Haley, the Republican governor of South Carolina ( a Bible belt state), not only did she publicly declare her devotion to Christianity...her own website has this to say: Question: Is Nikki a Christian? Question: Is Nikki a Christian? Truth: In Nikkiâ€™s words: â€œMy faith in Christ has a profound impact on my daily life and I look to Him for guidance with every decision I make. God has blessed my family in so many ways and my faith in the Lord gives me great strength on a daily basis. Being a Christian is not about words, but about living for Christ every day.â€ The very fact that she has to put up such a question in her website is in itself sickening.
