You know that the US doesn't actually have separation of church and state, right? It was only mentioned once in a letter written by Thomas Jefferson to a group called the Danbury Baptists.

While the First Amendment says that Congress cannot make a law endorsing/respecting a religion (ie: saying that Christianity is the religion of the US, or saying that they support one religion over another), which also means that they cannot create a religion; this does not mean that there is a separation of church and state. Separation of church and state is just a concept, albeit a very good concept that should be amended into the First Amendment of the US Constitution (because I believe there is a time and place for a person’s supernatural believe system to be practiced, it is NOT in school, it is in a place of worship (ie: a church, temple, or mosque), which is specifically what they’re built for), it is not actually in the constitution.
