As an atheist praise G-d I am so happy with the American and French revolutions which threw out the church from State rule. The Church practiced collective punishment of the Jewish people throughout its oppressive rule over Europe. Separation of Church and State secular people told the religious nuts to take a hike. You want to believe ... that's your right. You want to force your beliefs down other peoples throats ... I prefer cutting the balls off of beasts who carry their religion on their sleeves.

Seperation of Church & State isn't in the Constitution, it's mearly a comment in a letter by Jefferson. What the Constitution says is the Senate(US Govt) can't establish an Official Church. The letter didn't say God & State either, Church is an Organization, & the concept of a religiously sterile Govt is a relatively new concept, in the last 50 yrs or so. Biblical refrences are all over Federal buildings in D.C., Congress payed for Bibles in the early yrs, & Church services were held in the Capitol builing.

The Establishment Clause prohibits the federal, state or municipal establishment of a religion or other preference for one religion over another, non-religion over religion, or religion over non-religion.
Originally, the First Amendment applied only to the federal government. A number of the states effectively had established churches when the First Amendment was ratified, with some remaining into the early nineteenth century.

As it is one of the bands whose songs and beats are used for PT in the Spanish Army, please permit me this input (2nd version for the people who like to probe how fit those guys that provide the beats for PT are themselves: Not sooooo impressive...? Still: Good music!), "The separation of church and skate"by NOFX:
