Separation can only happen it there is something wrong with the source of the  religion and the bible has been question of originality. In Islam we don't have that because separation is a sin for a ruler (if you a ruler of a country and Muslim but separate God and country ) but this sin only applied to a ruler or government who believe in Islam. 

I’d counter that these laws from Judaism, Christianity and Islam were written when life was harsh and its laws reflected that. We have evolved as a species and as such the laws have largely changed since 1500+ years ago. I’m just gonna say if people of your faith believe saying words equals death, or chopping off heads is even considered as a punishment, then maybe you need some type of reform. 

Our faith and belief doesn’t change. How we conduct ourselves as people should however adapt with the times. 

I think the same of some of the jewish traditions, they not eating pork, removing the skin from the penis and some other you can really see were really helpful 2000 years ago or more because it helped hygiene and increased their survival rates. But nowadays they aren't necessary, but well as long as it doesn't harm others I don't care they keep with those. But sure whatever costume that is harmful needs to go.

And contrary to many atheist I recognize the importance to religion and religious thinking in shaping our culture and law. Several stuff we call moral, law and etc were born from religious teaching and are good.
