It is my belief and interpretation of the separation of church and state that the founding fathers did not believe that there should be a government endorsed or supported religion (Protestant, Catholic). That is not to say that they were against religion and god. I believe our country was found on its belief in God but they recognized everyone is not of the same belief.

Eh -- I'm fine with people who want to express their own faith but I do agree that they shouldn't express an official establishment. But I don't feel individuals should be persecuted or discouraged from practicing their faith as they see fit.
