“You cannot separate church and state when the state is your church”

Many people have sought the separation of church and state, but to some people (statists) the state is their church.

Wikipedia: Separation of church and state
The separation of church and state is a philosophical and jurisprudential concept for defining political distance in the relationship between religious organizations and the state. Conceptually, the term refers to the creation of a secular state (with or without legally explicit church-state separation) and to disestablishment, the changing of an existing, formal relationship between the church and the state. Although the concept is older, the exact phrase “separation of church and state” is derived from “wall of separation between church and state”, a term coined by Thomas Jefferson. The concept was promoted by Enlightenment philosophers such as John Locke.

If I had opened fire as a Marine under those same circumstances, I would count myself incredibly fortunate to avoid the death penalty.
I do understand why you feel as you do. You can’t separate church and state when the State is your Church.
