No, they can't legislate a religion, but that's not what you claimed they couldn't do.
Any law or rule that said that a, say Methodist, was precluded from making decisions based on their Methodist beliefs would be a clear violation of the free exercise clause.
There is no such thing as "Freedom FROM religion" in the Constitution, and there never was, no matter how much moron atheists would like there to be. (And before you get your dander up, I'm not talking about you, I'm talking about these idiots.)
That's exactly what I claimed that Congress can't do.
but if they try to legislated according to their religion it would be a violation of the "Establishment Clause".
Don't even try to pretend you're not talking about me.
Our Government has no religion or religious affiliation. And, sure a member of the clergy can and has been elected to office by their constituents, but if they try to legislated their religion it would be a violation of the "Establishment Clause".
