I seem to be spending entirely too much time repeating myself here on this topic.  This video should help those of us who don't really understand the constitution.

Freedom of Religion, Excerpts from the Complete Idiots guide to the US Constitution, by Timothy Harper 2007.

((“Many early colonists came to the New World to escape religious persecution, but once they got here they did not necessarily practice religious freedom or tolerance.  Many early American communities ostracized and sometimes punished people for not following their religion or even their sect of a shared religion.”…

“The First Amendment guarantees that the government will not prefer one religion over another.  It also guarantees that the government will not prefer religion in general over non-religion or the lack of religion, and that it will not prefer non-religion over religion.”))
