Thread Name: BS: The Religious Left
Subject: RE: BS: The Religious Left
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; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Just so we're clear -- no "separation of church and state" clause. That was an opinion expressed in a supreme court decision -- not a constitutional amendment.

And just so we're clear (as far as I can see), so far nobody has wished to alter the free exercise of religion until Frank posted a few minutes ago.
