"Our founding fathers tried to make sure this did not happen by including the separation of church and state in the Constitution."
Sorry...You will spend an eternity trying to find "the separation" in our Constitution. It IS, however, in the constitution of the former USSR. You
need to google "Thomas Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists," which assured them the government would stay out of church affairs and not
become like the Church of England and vice versa. Later(1947) the US Supreme Court misinterpreted Jefferson's words and thoughts(according to Supreme
Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist and many others) to use this "wall" to attack ANY influence of religion upon government. Yawn...Just Liberals
attacking Christians. What else is new! Read the letter. It was written many years after the Constitution, and after Jefferson was President...who
just so happened to set aside government funds to evangelize the Indians out west, attended church every Sunday in the largest one in the US-the US
Capitol Bldg., where the Marine Band played every service. Also as President, Jefferson ordered all schools to use the Bible to teach reading. Hardly
the "wall" later erected by a prejudiced and anti-Christian Supreme Court in 1947."CONGRESS" shall make NO laws respecting the establishment of
religion, nor PROHIBIT the free exercise thereof. NOT the Supreme Court. But liberals could care less, since they believe in an "evolving"(like
evolution)Constitution and NOT the ORIGINAL intent of the writer(Jefferson)and founders themselves.
