I think the constitutional intent is to make sure the government and any particular church don't share the same hierarchy. Purging all religious influence from the government is a Communist ideal, not a constitutional one.
I think one of the main factors that's made America great is we've always had a good balance between religious traditions and modern progress.

Makes sense to me thank you. Like you mentioned, Communism is the big one, because everyone is supposed to be "robots" to follow the prime directive of communism (everything belongs to everybody-yea right).
To support your theory, that is why China, NKorea,cuba?, right now try to ban any type of religions that try and blossom in their countries along with heavy censorship and (people owned-but really Commie dictator owned) media censors and manipulates everybody. Hope i got most the basics right ;) I know it's more complex than that.

Exactly. It is so the government does not give preference to any particular church.
And the latter part of the sentence is "or prohibiying the free exercise thereof..."
A part the American Communist Liberties Union routinely ignore.
