    Topic: Politics and Religion

    Assignment: Essay, debate or presentation.

    In many countries, there is a belief in the separation of “church and state,” meaning religion or religious groups should not be involved in or influence politics or government (and vice versa). Think of some pros and cons of religion and politics being separate, and present/argue one side.

    If you need ideas, there is an interesting article from Time Magazine titled “The Real Meaning of the Separation of Church and State” (http://time.com/5103677/church-state-separation-religious-freedom/) or do an internet search for “separation of church and state.”
