Author Suggests Church-State Questions For Tonight's Vice-Presidential Debate

Author Susan Jacoby, writing at Newsweek's On Faith, sets out her suggestions for the questions on church-state issues that should be asked of Joe Biden and Sarah Palin at tonight's vice-presidential debate. She suggests seven specific questions, with an emphasis on how the candidates view-- both broadly and narrowly-- church-state separation issues.

UPDATE: On last night's CBS Evening News, Katie Couric, ahead of tonight's debate, asked each of the vice-presidential candidates several questions. Two were of particular interest. Here are their answers to a question on church-state separation, and here are their responses to a question about Roe v. Wade.
