Cute, the Hollywood left's version of history, do you actually read my links and the links contained within.
The acts of a single man, doesn't allow the backdating of French ideas into the Constitution, no matter what the Warren Court said.

Karl.....

Who exactly WAS that single man...the one who talked about the dangers of state endorsed religion as early as 1774?

Who WAS he?

Groucho Marx?

Karl, take a half an hour and closely read the Holy Trinity opinion that the authors of the link you provided quoted out of context. Pay special attention to the last two paragraphs.

The Court acted to prohibit un-Constitutional government restriction of individual religious expression.

Separation of church and state. Parochial schools fall under a tax exemption because of it. They are usually funded by the church and tuition. They'll be ok without tax dollars.
Churches fall under 501c3 tax exempt status.

For a 501c3 church to openly speak out, or organize in opposition to, anything that the government declares "legal," even if it is immoral (e.g. abortion, homosexuality, etc.), that church will jeopardize its tax exempt status. The 501c3 has had an "effect" upon the free speech rights of the church.

To be taxable a church would first need to be under the jurisdiction, and therefore under the taxing authority, of the government. The First Amendment clearly places the church outside the jurisdiction of the civil government: "Congress shall make NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion, nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

According to the IRS, Churches do not have to file for 501 status.

Exhibit 7.25.1-1
Table of Organizations Exempt Under Section 501
501(c)(3) Religious, Educational, Charitable, Scientific, Literary, Testing for Public Safety, or Prevention of Cruelty to Children or Animals or to Foster National or International Sports Competition

No where in the Constitution is there anything related to Separation of Church and State.

closest mention is .........."Congress shall make NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion, nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

I never said it was in the constitution, did I? I'm fully aware of the taxation of churches or lack there of.

You could have saved the cut and paste.
