    Well you can't have the 1st amendment without the Separation of Church and State.

    It does not exist. It's an invention by liberals for the sole purpose further pushing immorality and sickness.

    1st Amendment prevents a State religion..."Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion"

    Separation of Church and State was one line in a letter from a sitting president to the Danbury Baptists, long after the First Amendment was written.

    a few pantywaists got upset that others had freedom of religion, and took it to court.

    Court decided government should not be involved with religion.

    That, however, has not prevented a daily prayer being said in both the House and the Senate for almost 2 centuries.

    But, keep claiming the First states something that IS NOT THERE

    One should have to swear on the constitution.


    The bible is a sheep herders book that doesn't mean anything.

    The constitution is what they're pledging to in the first place.
