Separation of Church and State (unless of course it will boost my ratings)

This headline caught my attention - Obama Asks Religious Leaders to Preach the Gospel of Health Care Reform
With approval ratings plummeting and support for the new health care law waning, the president is scrambling for ways to sell his health care overhaul. Possibly looking for a miracle, he’s turning to church leaders who preach about such events to deliver one.

“Get out there and spread the word,” the president encouraged religious leaders on the call. Politico reports that Obama also advised those listening to treat the new law as settled fact and use their perches of power to convey that message to congregants and friends.

“The debate in Washington is over,” he said, and called on the leaders to be “important validators and trusted resources,” regarding the law.

 The liberals cry "separation of church and state," when they feel religion may be influencing against their government, but they have no problem with the prospects of government influencing religion. Isn't this exactly what our founding fathers wanted to keep separate?
