Prof. Paulsen on the "separation of church and state"

Michael Stokes Paulsen, our old civil procedure professor, has some thoughts on Christine O'Donnell's comments about the separation of church and state, including:
Ms. O’Donnell’s pithy challenge—“Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?”—is actually an excellent shorthand critique of those (like Mr. Coons, perhaps?) who would sloppily translate the First Amendment’s protections of religious liberty into incoherent hostility toward religion. And that is no laughing matter.
