While I do not care to involve myself in political debate. I wish everyone would actually go and read the letter Jefferson wrote to the Danbury Baptist Church in 1802. The "wall of separation," is from this letter, it is not mentioned ANY WHERE in the Constitution.

The 1st ammendment is very clear also, it protects the Church in 2 ways. 1.) Shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion ( ie will not require everyone to attend a certain church or practice a certain religion) 2.) Guarantees the free expression of religion by her citizens. IMHO, note ... this is an opinion, too often in an effort to apply the first protection (often incorrectly), we are denied the second. What a shame.
