First Amendment of the United States Constitution reads:
"Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise
thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right
of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for
a redress of grievances."
When people are begin to talk
about the separation of church and state, they cite the First Amendment.
But what does it really say. Does the Amendment say that the government
cannot promote religion? In the Pledge of Allegiance, is the term
"under God" a violation of the Amendment? Or does the Amendment imply
that the government cannot promote one religion over others but can promote
religion in general? These are the questions that lawyers and scholars
have struggled with for many years. Come along and join the discussion
of the separation of church and state.
