I don't understand. You mean there aren't people in government who wear their religion on their sleeves and vote with only their particular religious views in mind? I thought she was saying something new, not describing the situtation as is.

Empty words to get people on both sides worked up and to raise her profile.

Really, separation of church and state meant that state shouldn't interfere in church matters, but having religion in the public sphere is pretty much ok so long as it doesn't violate anyones constitutional rights.

I still prefer that than the French or Turkish model which violates, or limits, constitutional rights in order to prevent religious people from having a voice in the public sphere.
