Thank you. I saw those. As I said, I wasn't familiar with it.

While that is indeed disturbing, it doesn't change my central point: It isn't twisted to recognize that men may have religious beliefs but a government cannot favor one belief over another. That's the very foundation of religious freedom.

That is a very extreme interpretation of our Constitution that has only been adapted recently. It is being used ban public display of religious expression that has any connection with Government. And now that government consumes about 40% of the GDP, that adds up to a huge ban. Not establishing a religion and not showing any favoritism are two different things in my book.
