"Blatant" Religiousity?

I am not speaking on Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore's behalf nor against him. Sometimes he seems "out there" with some of his statements and I am concerned about his motives. But the author of this petition is ignorant. Since when is being "religious" akin to a crime? The author doesn't seem to know what "Separation of Church and State" means, the history behind the phrase, and that it isn't in the Constitution. This is one of those myths that a lot of people have believed for a long time. He also comlains about "blatant religiosity." "Blatant" means bad behavior performed unashamedly and out in the open. I can think of a lot of things that applies to, but not religion. What our country really needs is more God-influenced leadership, not less.
