You know what the biggest irony is? Separation of church and state is a Christian concept, derived from St. Augustine's City of God. The notion of there being separate realms of secular and religious did not exist until the Christian era.

I wouldn't consider it that ironic, the founding fathers were persecuted for religious excuses.
