US separation of church and state well established

Our views on creation help guide our principles in life. One of the Declaration of Independence authors, Thomas Jefferson, supports the idea of our creator and our reason to be free. Our Constitution has no reference to God’s participation in government. Jefferson also said erecting a wall between church and state is absolutely necessary in a free society.

John F. Kennedy said, “It is apparently necessary for me to state once again not what kind of church I believe in, for that should be important only to me, but what kind of America I believe in.”

Ronald Reagan said, “At the same time our Constitution prohibits state establishment of religion, it protects the free exercise of all religion. And walking this fine line requires government to be strictly neutral.”
