I grow weary of your willful misunderstanding.

"The Law states that the government may not create an offical religion not that the religion can't get into government."

The issue is, what constitutes a state-sponsored religion? I would consider teaching creationism in schools to qualify, hence, it is illegal.

"In it he states that the Law will be a wall created between the government and the church. TO PROTECT THE CHRUCH FROM THE GOVERNMENT'S CONTROL NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND."

Absolute shlock. First of all, whether or not it was in the opinion of ALL the founding fathers, Jefferson wanted religion out of government for the sake of government, not religion. He hated orthodox christianity. I posted a list of quotes by him and his colleages, and you read them. Here, Aaron, refresh your memory: http://www.astronomy.net/forums/god/messages/17422.shtml?base=90

Whenever fundamentalists infest the government, bad things happen. Inquisitions, crusades, jihads, and holy wars abound. Pull your head out of your keester, meester. If you don't like religion being forced to stay away from government, move to Iraq and enjoy their enlightened leadership. And don't force your religion down other people's throats.
