"Congress shall make no law regarding an establishment of religion, or the free practice thereof.."

The err in your post regarding "the establishment clause" is a common one, that exists due to the indoctrination of humanism, or secularism [take your pick] in the public schools. An establishment, is in the noun transitive form, it can be replaced with the Catholic church or Islam or any other term which describes a religion, man-made or otherwise. So an equivalent would be, Congress shall make no law regarding the Catholic church or Islam etc.

No one is suggesting they do.

To differentiate from "the establishment" form of the First Amendment [which only exists in the minds of liberals and other victims of cognitive disonance], it is taken to mean that government cannot involve itself with the establishment of a religion. Ironically, they have done exactly that in instituting the establishment of secular humanism in schools, complete with its creation story [evolutionism] and moral code [situational ethics].

And they have the audacity to call people like me hypocrites.
