Mixing Religion & State In Trinidad & Tobago

Growing up in Trinidad I was told that having a state that also had religious values was good and having gone to a Catholic school prayer and other religious recitals was a normal thing. I was also told that it is religion that formed the country. There are many government funded religious schools and religious holidays and in official gatherings there is always a prayer or prayers said.

Now that I have traveled some and can think for myself I can safely say that Trinidad and Tobago should make a clear definition between religion and state. Here is one example. We live near a public park that is about a block away from us. Today a church has decided that it will use the park, in the evening to boot, to play outrageously loud alternative 'religious' music so that anyone from miles around can hear it. Why is it that I cannot enjoy a peaceful time with my family at this hour of the night? I am not of your religious beliefs, I don't even like the music even if I were to believe the same but here I am in a residential area being subjected to noise pollution. This is just one of MANY examples I can share, however… what has been your experience with T&T's belief that religion and state should co-exist?

Tobago and Trinidad State and Religion Mixing

The thing is, this has been the norm for a lot of Trinidadians for a very long time - they simply don't care and continue living the reckless lifestyle. Honestly, there's a lot of irony regarding what they do with religion (E.g talking about being considerate of others) and their actions are telling a different story.
