On June 28, 2004 Crosswalk/Agape Press reported, "A newly released study shows that the vast majority of Protestant clergy in the U.S. believe the so-called separation of church and state in America has been carried too far. The results of the study are being made public for the first time in the July/August edition of Facts and Trends magazine... Proportionally, only a handful of Protestant pastors disagreed with this assessment, with only 8% expressing the belief that the separation of church and state had not been taken far enough and that more is needed. And a slightly larger minority, 13%, said they feel the current level of separation between the religious and secular entities in America is just about right."
