South Carolina House Rep. Jonathon Hill needs to recognize there is such a thing as separation of church and state, and that it applies to South Carolina. He wants to pose leading questions designed to push or even coerce a judge to take a stand based on beliefs and not the law.

Any judge should of course temper his decisions with his beliefs, but also must apply the law. These questionnaires are so inappropriate as to be ridiculous.

I served 24 years in the U.S. Air Force defending our freedoms and beliefs. I am sad that South Carolina is filled with so much hatred, sadly portrayed by some of our elected officials.
