Abstract:     
This Article explores whether liberal democracy demands the separation of Church and State. Drawing from several western jurisdictions - including Canada, the United States, Argentina, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, and England - this Article advances the historical and theoretical claim that the American model of strict separationism is not necessarily an indispensable feature of liberal democracy.
