Separation of Church and State

Dear Sir,

Sorry if I offended you and anyone else attached to the email. Yes we have to respect each branch of service. I had a Father in the U.S.A.F., Grandfather in the first Navy SeaBees in WWII in the Pacific and an Uncle who was a C.O. in the Army. If the gentleman is just addressing the group,  without infusing his doctrine in his speech what does it matter if he is a Christian? And by the way the term Separation of Church and State was first used by Thomas Jefferson in 1802. 36 years after the Constitution was approved.
Respectfully Submitted,
(name withheld)

For your information, Roger Williams (American clergy, religious freedom advocate, founder of the Rhode Island colony & the first Baptist Church in American) first used “wall of separation” between church & state in writings published in 1644. Also, even Jesus separated religion & government (see Matthew 22:21 & Mark 12:17).
