Separation of religion & State

How do you tell people that there really isn't any place for their favourite religion in the politics, the Constitution etc. of their country if they want their state to work at its best? Simple, you turn the reasoning in the other direction and you say:

"We don't want to involve God in questions of infrastructure and sewerage, technology and water. Islam equals God. How can we involve it in such daily affairs?"

Thanks to Moammar Gaddafi for the smart move, to my insomnia for making me put the comp back on (really, it's 6:30 AM and I already started the week laughing, how much better can it get?), and hat tip to ideofact for linking to this Washington Post article (subscription required but free).
