The Founding Fathers had a chance to establish a Christian theocracy, if that's what they wanted to do. But, they didn't.

"God," "Jesus," or "Christ" isn't mentioned once in the Constitution. Instead, the First Amendment prohibits the federal government from establishing a religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof (religious freedom). And, Article VI states that no religious test shall *ever* be required for any federal or state public office. Please think about that--"no religious test" for public office. What does that say about the FF's attitude about what Jefferson called the wall of separation between church and state.

It's sad that the religious don't realize that wall protects *them* from an overreaching government as well as the non-religious.
