The concept of the separation of church and state evolved as a way of preventing self-selected domineering religious and secular leaders from concentrating their powers to abuse --- into one select/exclusive group of religious <=> secular leaders with unlimited powers within itself as regards both secular and religious questions and issues. Under the principle of the separation of church and state the most powerful secular leaders are to have no power to pass laws, rules, commandments regulating religious matters; e.g., they are not to presume to speak for God Himself. How then, within the concept of the separation of church and state, are we to prevent the abuse of religious powers within religious organizations --- by religious leaders who claim that God Himself has said that there are to be no limitations placed upon their powers; no system of check and balances which transcend their supreme power within their own isolated religious organization? How can the crew of Space-Ship-Earth deal with domineering religious leaders who contend that God Himself has told them to exercise both religious power and secular power in one seamless whole; with no system of checks and balances which transcends their supreme power within their own religious organization? Are domineering religious leaders to have unlimited power to do the following: 1. To decree what vulnerable people must: think, believe, say, confess, desire, describe, experience, do and avoid? 2. To regulate the details of private personal relationships which are: gracious, gentle, honest, non-violent, balanced, mutual, and integrative? 3. To regulate speech, writing, publications, meetings, petitions, assemblies, etc. 4. To regulate all aspects of human sexuality. 5. To concentrate additional powers into their own hands --- without limitation? 6. To play collusive games of mutual self deception among themselves; and to lead others into joining them in playing their collusive games of mutual self deception. 7. To lead others into becoming faithful servants of The Domination System which they themselves worship --- and to whom they themselves offer sacrifices of their own and other peoples and communities' various kinds of personal and communal integrities? 8. To prevent others from forming informal-webs of informal-consensus through which to: describe, expose, transcend, subvert, and deal with the webs of domineering controls which are demanded by "The Domination System", "The Powers That Be", and many "Collusive Games of Mutual- Self-Deception" --- which are governed by many dishonest addicts and their faithful codependent supporters. 9. To prevent inter-religious fellowships which transcend the exclusive and alienative demands of domineering supporters of "The Global Domination System" which is governed by capitalistic multinational corporations which have no hearts, souls or spirit.
