For the U.S., the edict that Congress would make no law establishing a [state] religion, nor prohibiting the free exercise of religion, was written into the Bill of Rights. Many people had emigrated here to avoid persecution at home for their religious practices — especially not accepting the beliefs of the Church of England — and they wanted to be certain that that freedom continued. Examples would be the Puritans, Quakers and others who came later. For the USSR, their Constitution explicitly stated that the church would be separate from the state, and the school system from the church. There's no indication that any churches agreed to this or not; it was forced upon them.

What is meant by the separation of church and state?

Both church and state are separate entities, each having its own governing body. The only time the government or state have cause to act is when some offense by a church member or the church itself contradicts the laws of that state. If a man murders or steals then the church takes its own action, but then the person must face the legal requirements of the states laws.

Do you agree in the separation of the church and state of the Philippines?

The state (or country) should always stay out of the affairs of the church. The church should be free from any restrictions from the state since the head is Christ Himself. This doesn't mean that the church is above the law. The church should obey the law unless the law requires disobedience to God, at which point the church should disobey the law in order to obey God. Any idea of "Separation of Church and State" should be for the church's protection from the state, otherwise the result will be to "kick God out" of the country so to speak and that is never a good thing!
