I'll see your uncited, likely made-up quote and raise you a document ratified unanimously by the Senate and signed by the President at the time (none other than John Adams).

The religious affiliation of the Founding Fathers is irrelevant; thousands upon thousands of Christians and Christian demoninations came to America and began converting others (specifically Native Americans). Massive cultural changes have happened since the late 1700's ya know. It's an issue of majority vs. minority, not the beliefs of a group of men who couldn't agree with one another 300 years ago.

Perhaps, but they realized the dangers of establishing a government based on a religion. Remember reading something about that in the Federalist papers (probably 10 since it's the only one I seem to ever remember).

Wait? So, are you trying to say that Obama might not be a Muslim Marxist? I find that so hard to believe.
