What is meant by, "Freedom of Religion?


There were many attempts by Christians to insert such beliefs and dogma directly into the US Constitution and to have the Constitution support a Christian mandate of belief. The most famous incident was a request from the Bishops of Danbury CT., which was rebuffed by T. Jefferson. Should the US Constitution be amended to make Christianity a State sponsored religion, as is Islam? Should America become a theocracy or is freedom best left to a secular State?

    Christin--I think we have disagreed before, but not this time. Perhaps there should be a question, as too, where in the Constitution can a religious principle be found, that this country was founded on such principles?
