  •  But the state constitutions (0+ / 0-)

    included (in many cases) the official participation of the church in leftover language from the colonial constitutions (or whatever those various documents were called). The establishment clause in the first amendment was added to rectify this and specifically exclude the church from the government and vice versa.
