This is political wishful thinking above. Jefferson was vilified as an Atheist and having red hair slaves his own children by Sally Hemmings. Today many Atheists have rainbow children proud to wear the scientific non-religious label. Nonetheless theocrats from 1789 Anglicans to TrumpOLINI Presbyterians 2016 rule this nation with an iron fist. Those words above were mere consoling hope for Danbury Anabaptists who wrote the President in 1802. Sup Ct cases are few and far between. For example school kids here and there are not forced to prEy in classrooms but Congress prEys to the flag and pays a preacher 150 thousand a year for 3 prEyers a week ONLY WHEN IN SESSION. ....secularism is a vain hope instead of a government routine. Only when millions of Atheists protest the lies IN gawd WE TRUST on the money will Jefferson's words ring true from Hawaii to Harvard
Well done, D. Unfortunately people tend to have a poor memory or ignore the reason why the wall exists in the first place.
