Secondly, the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
It was added to prohibit the establishment of a state church as the British had done with the Church of England. The concept of separation was later promulgated by Thomas Jefferson in an essay. It is not in the Constitution.
Thirdly, I’ve noticed Hochenauer likes using the word “draconian.” As practiced in the U.S., evangelical Christianity is a lot less draconian than radical Islam. Why do left-wing liberals profess such antipathy toward Christianity, but such love and admiration toward Islam?
