Watching the Democratic debate last night, the separation between church and state was not brought up once. Church and State magazine recently published 10 questions people should be asking the presidential candidates.

Questions include:

“Do you think houses of worship should be allowed to endorse political candidates and retain their tax-exempt status?”
and
“Do you think my pharmacist should be allowed to deny me doctor-prescribed medications based on his or her religious beliefs?”
