To go back to the First Amendment, it reads.."Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..."

This plainly states that any law that is made, that in any way encroaches upon religion, is ipso facto unconstitutional. So when the Supremely liberal court decided to expell God from the classroom, the ruling was, in effect, made unconstitutional by the First Amendment.

"But it also prevents government from respecting any establishment of religion".

Your statement, though willingly embraced by the majority of the populace, and more importantly, the ACLU [those self-annointed gaurdians of civil liberties] is semantically similar. This rendering produces dramatic differences in interpretation.

And it is wrong.
