Student Aaron Good ’13 spoke out on church-state separation in an eloquent opinion column in The Oregonian.
Good is getting a front-row seat on the presidential campaign while studying at American University in Washington, D.C., this semester.
“In an election season where jobs and the economy are consistently cited as the most important issues for voters, it is surprising to see issues of church-state separation making front page headlines,” Good wrote in his op-ed.
A survey of Americans reveals that most citizens agree with a strict interpretation of the separation of church and state, Good says, but right now the majority is being drowned out by those with the loudest voices.
“It is time that the majority of Americans, those of us who do support the essential constitutional principle of church-state separation, make our voices heard,” Good says.
