Unholy Unions Lead to Unholy Wars

Christianity Today has an interesting review of a couple books that highlight the dangers of uniting church and state.

It is worth a read. Here's a link.

Unfortunately, the article's author, Stan Guthrie, seems to prefer some form of domestic partnership between church and state. He says,
Clearly there are efforts under way in the courts and elsewhere to marginalize the influence of Christians in an irony-laden attempt at enforcing "tolerance." Many Christians, claiming that America is or was a Christian nation, are on the offensive, rightly fighting such creeping secularization in the courts of law and public opinion.

To me, there doesn't seem to be any less danger of "unholy" wars with domestic partneships than with fully established marriages. The bride of Christ is still sleeping in the wrong bed.
