The separation of church and state is clear in the constitution. Public school teachers should teach nouns and pronouns, 1 plus one. Religion should be taught at church and at home.
The separation of church and state is a legal and political principle derived from the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which reads, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof . . ." The modern concept is often credited to the writings of English philosopher John Locke, but the phrase "separation of church and state" is generally traced to an 1802 letter by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists, where Jefferson spoke of the combined effect of the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. It has since been quoted in several opinions handed down by the United States Supreme Court,though the Court has not always fully embraced the principle.Separation of church and state appears nowhere in the US Constitution. It was created out of thin air by Justice Hugo Black in the 1947 Everson case. It has become the shield that the anti-god crowd uses to deflect all moral accountability. The Supreme Court has the power to offer opinions. An opinion of the Supreme Court is not law. The 1947 Everson v Board of Education which gave us "separation of church and state” is an unconstitutional, extra constitutional construct, intended to strip the free speech rights of Christians. As the Court ruled in Marbury v Madison 1803, "All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.”
