The US Constitution.
7 months ago

Amendment 1. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF;

That first bit gets a lot of play from modern secular progressives, but even it doesn't mean what they try to say it means. The second bit is what they omit altogether when referencing the amendment.

All this amendment was intended to do was to protect the people from being compelled to practice a state religion, what ever that religion may be. Now the second part is really interesting because it is very clear. It doesn't say only in private, or not in the public square, or anything like that.

For anyone interested in knowing what their talking about, Hillsdale collage is offering a free online course on the constitution.
