No, today the socialists and atheists have used the constitution to effectively destroy religious freedom. Originally, congress wanted to prevent the United States from establishing a nationalized religion as had happened in several European nations. The King of England had established the Church of England as their national religion and while there were many who were not members of that religion, you often joined another religion at your peril. The purpose of the phrase in the constitution was to assure that congress did not establish a national religion but at the same time was to prevent restrictions that would prevent a citizen from practicing any religion that he/she felt was best for him/her. Today those laws have caused that cities remove Christmas scenes from city property. School music teachers are unable to have students sing Christmas Carols that have any kind of religious content. Prayer has been removed from schools and public meetings. What kind of message are we sending the children of the nation when we will not allow children to read The Bible at school, but they can certainly join a club that advocates morally offensive sexual activity? During the writing of the Constitution, the original framers often prayed for guidance. The constitution refers to freedoms granted by The Creator and even on our money we read
