Jefferson was famous for writing the first draft of the Declaration of Independence. He is also famous for writing a often misunderstood sentence "The separation of church a…nd state". This was actually written to the Baptist leaders stating that the duty of our country is to "add a wall of separation between the church and the state that the state could never tear down". The letter promised that the Government would never interfere or make any laws restricting religion. There was never an intent to stop religion from being central in Government.
