nowhere in our Constitution does it say the Church must remain separate from the State.
this is nothing more then a re-write of history and the people who spread this lie know it.
when the nation was founded , 20% - 40% of the signers of the Constituion and the Declaration of Independence were ordained ministers.
it simply defies logic to believe the founders of the nation were trying to exclude themselves and their religion from government.
one of the first actions of the newly formed government was to commision and distribute Bibles.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
this refers only to Congress and it's laws,
the reason why this is in the Constitution is because Europe was having problems with kings declaring themselves as head of the church and naming a particular sect of religion as the Nation's religion.
in other words, anything the king did would be considered holy, and everyone in the country would have to change their religion to match the king's, other sects would often be persecuted.
the First Amendmemt is a restriction on government , not the public.
Congress shall make no law ...prohibiting the free exercise thereof.
people may display religious symbols on their person or on their property, businesses , in their government posts, anywhere,
...form religious schools...preach in the public...
the Federal government can not make laws against it , and State governments must abide by the "unalienable right"
