  • Spirituality Versus Religion - Is there a difference? Which do you practice?

    in Entertainment

    Some belive that spirituality and religion are different and some believe that you cannot have one without the other.  Do you consider youself one or the other or do you believe they both mean the same thing?  In the wake of the current issues with same sex marriages and the protection of religious freedoms while executing a public office...does there need to be separation of church and state or should any and everyone be able to practice their religion regardless of the outcome?
