ABSTRACT
The article discusses topics related to religion, politics and culture in the U.S. It states that the anti-gay initiative seeks to force a specific religious doctrine on the populace as a whole, and that is accordingly something that should worry the Americans. According to the article, the wall between the church and state always has been and always will be somewhat permeable. Religion on the other hand has accordingly inspired great works of art over the century.
