Not only am I learning about the French Revolution, but also that Australians have been mangling the name of our tallest peak for a century and a half :-)

Loved the latest episode, and I really hope you strongly consider returning to pickup and go through the Napoleonic Wars after you're done with the revolutions podcast. If you do, now would be the time to start laying some of the groundwork, because I'm not sure if you know this or not(you probably do), but you just passed by a chance to introduce Arthur Wellesley, the Duke of Wellington, just days after the anniversary of the battle of Waterloo too! He was serving with the British forces in the United Provinces in his first campaign. Apparently it was a miserable ordeal in which he said he "learnt everything one ought not do, which is always worth something." or something along those lines.

You stated in this chapter that the idea of separation of church and state first manifested itself in France in the 1790s. What of the U.S. and its Bill of Rights?

So the French situation is now starting to resemble a typical gaming session of Europa Universalis 4. This cartoon seems to be particularly relevant: http://i.imgur.com/pSmO96C.png. I especially like "They cite 'We're France' as their casus belli". Enjoy the new French export of war, 18th century Europe.
About the church-state separation, I think this was referring specifically to France and didn't include the rest of the world.

Adding my two cents on the separation of Church and State issue...
So the US bill of rights prohibits Congress from making any law regarding the establishment of any state religion. However, it says nothing about individual states doing the same thing, and many states had state religions of their own. So I think Mike's point still stands.
