State & Church: good fences make good neighbors

Good Fences - Justice Felix Frankfurter

We have staked the very existence of our country on the faith that complete separation between the state and religion is best for the state and best for religion. If nowhere else, in the relation between Church and State, good fences make good neighbors.

- Justice Felix Frankfurter in his opinion in McCollum v. Board of Education
