"Personally, we have always avoided the expression, 'Separation of State and Church,' or used it only with quotation marks. A separations points to mutual authorization, or to an equalization of two institutions or powers, but from a radical point of view, such an equality of rights between state and church cannot be recognized. From a radical point of view, the church is not to be separated, but to be cut off and neutralized." A posthumous work from the well-known German-American radical "Forty-eighter" Heinzen, published by fellow German radical Herman Lieber of Indianapolis, one of the founding members of the Freethinkers' Society of Indianapolis and president of this Association for the Propagation of Radical Principles.
