You are talking about two different periods of time. In the time of Thomas More there was no such thing as separation of church and state and what he did was in fact noble. Now-a-days however, there is no conflict in trying to uphold one's SECULAR duties as a public servant AND be a "religious" person at the same time.

So you subscribe to a 'compartmentalization' that both spiritual advisors and psychiatrists call 'pschyztophrenic'. That's when you subscribe to a set of beliefs but only practice them in certain situations.

Many mass murders, rapists, and mentally unbalanced people are diagnosed with this.

Some famous people you may be aware of that openly speak and act with this type of thinking are Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot, Descarte, Ted Kennedy, Mario Cuomo, John Kerry, Noam Chomsky, and Karl Marx.

All of the foremention subscribe to various strands of liberalism that manifests itself in communism, socialism, and secularism.

Actually in before the Henry VIII and Thomas Cranmer started their new religion (Anglicanism) there was a separation between the Church and the state, all Catholics owed their primary loyalty to God, and so were expected to obey the moral teachings of the Church, but the Church did not rule in secular matters.

In any event, don't count on FoxFaith to provide uplifting entertainment. I recently saw "The End of the Spear" which is a re-make and sequel to "The Gates of Splendor" a true story about Christian missionaries who were martyred in Ecuador in the 40's. In the new version, the word's Jesus or Christ are not mentioned once, nobody prays even when they are about to be martyred, even God is almost completely absence... the movie is secularized...
