  •  These people will not be happy (5+ / 0-)

    until Christianity is the state religion and heretics are executed. They don't care what the plain language of the Constitution says, and they will never be convinced that they are wrong in their interpretation, such as it is.

    They are right, and all others are wrong, and headed for eternal damnation as a result.

      They won't be happy until their particular version of Christianity is the state religion. The history of Christianity is anything but one of doctrinal unity. The founders were well aware of this, having lived through a time of bloody wars triggered by minor differences in doctrine between powerful parties. They realized that any commingling between government and religion would result in government eventually becoming nothing but a weapon in fights between religious factions.
