Separation between state and church.

So i think that the separation between state and church is a joke. The government supports those who believe in god more then they do for those who can't get a job very easy. If you start a church you don't have to pay property taxes where your churches are located and if you need to buy anything for your church you don't need to pay income taxes on those items. Now i know there are some organizations that do have that but those organizations are for everyone if needed. Now there may be more that i don't know about, those 2 are the only ones that im aware of. In the pledge of allegiance that so many people say daily has the words one nation under god. The original the pledge of allegiance was written by a theist. "The Pledge of Allegiance of the United States is an oath of loyalty to the national flag and the republic of the United States of America," now i got that on wikipedia. SO since we all dont believe in any god that must mean we aren't loyal to this country since it is a country under god. Personally i dont like the government but i think one nation under god should be taken out of it. It was put in because of catholics. I think this violates separation between state and church because it went through the government as a bill.

Yeah, the USA is total crap. I'd really like to move out of this country, and into another one if possible. I'd have to do more research though.

This is what's happening in the lead up to the Australian Federal Election:
