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...
theres 3 sites, all say the same thing for the 1st amendment, and NOT IN ONE! DID I SEE THE "..seperation of church and state..." Don't believe me?
quit listening to your commie teacher and READ THE CONSTITUTION!
Now, it says;
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;..."
--Congress shall make NO LAW respecting an ESTABLISHMENT of religion.
#1: So, only Congress CAN NOT .
(kinda lame, but thats a strict constitutionalist view.)

#2: Now everyone will agree, religion is a belief or ideals. What makes a Catholic different then an Athesist? If the
Athesistic ideals are...
"...An Atheist loves himself and his fellow man instead of a god. An Atheist accepts that heaven is something for which we should work now -- here on
earth -- for all men together to enjoy. An Atheist accepts that he can get no help through prayer, but that he must find in himself the inner
conviction and strength to meet life, to grapple with it, to subdue it and to enjoy it. ..."
(the quote is below the IMMEDIATE RELEASE part.)
Thus; there can be NO LAW RESPECTING OR EVEN DISRESPECTING any religion.
#3: This ones alot simplier and more logical.(AKA READ THIS ONE!) If you will remember American History class, (before it was "corrected" by the
politically correct police.)

If you will remember with me, England had a NATIONAL RELIGION at the time, the Church of England.
This section of the 1st amendment was put in there to solely prevent such a happening in this founding Republic, (yes, a Republic, the USA is a
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..."
MEANS IN PLAIN ENGLISH...
NO NATIONAL RELIGION!
