There is no "separation of church and state" in the Constitution.
"Congress shall pass no law respecting an establishment of
religion." SOunds so vague, doesn't it?
No, it's very clear. It says Congress is prohibited from
ESTABLISHING a state religion. It says nothing about "separation of
church and state".
No, it's not. One is the government saying "you will belong to
religion X", the other is preventing the government from even
acknowledging that religion exists.
I don't see that it says anything about preventing government from
acknowledging that religion exists, just not passing laws concerning the
establishment of religion.
