James Madison's 15 Points: Separation of Church and State

I certainly cannot argue against Madison's 15 points referred to in the article at the blog site below....Madison is absolutely correct.  Remember...he and the founders of our country understood separation between Church and State is a "2 way principle".....the State should not endorse or establish any one Religion over another NOR suppress ANY Religious expression in the public arena.  ie; suppressing  ANY Religious public expression is a violation of the 1st Amendment...NOT and extension of it.

Separation of Church and State in the Amendment is the most misunderstood Amendment because it puts all other Amendments in jeopardy, especially the 2nd and 4th.

HOWEVER......the atheistic "spin"  in this article   implies Madison wanted to stifle ALL public religious expression and that "Religion" is destroying America is probably the most ignorant statement I have ever heard from ANY atheist.
