Best Answer

Many of the founding fathers were from England or had ancestors from England. At the time, England was having battles over religion. The Catholics and the Protestants hated each other and were more than willing to do battle over that fact. The King of England had established The "Church of England" as the national religion. The founding fathers recognized the error in that action and put into the constitution, "Congress shall make no laws establishing a religion..." or something close. They never wanted to STOP religion, nor did they ever say that states and municipalities couldn't post the 10 Commandments or in other ways support religious belief. They just didn't want the government to establish "The Church of the United States" as an alternate income source for the government.
