no problem with the bold, much easier to read.
1) you named four people who were deist, and 56 people signed the declaration of Independence, just wanted to point that out, here is a list of there religions http://www.adherents.com/gov/Founding_Fathers_Religion.html
most of them christians
2) we can argue the old testament thing all day and sorry I don't feel like arguing that right now
but anyways, I see where you are coming from and I know what you are saying it "violates the first amendment" but how do you go about a democracy when people vote based on there opinions and what they believe, it's impossible not to, it's inevitable.
