On the separation of church, state, and Facebook

Rhode Island, as we all know, was founded by Roger Williams, who fled religious intolerance in the Massachusetts Bay Colony and said that “God requireth not a uniformity of religion to be enacted in any civil state.” Indeed, descendants of Joseph Clarke, brother of John Clarke, who wrote the Rhode Island Charter that established separation of church and state in the colony, live in Charlestown today.
