why we need to keep religion

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglican Church, Ashfield, New South Wales. Illustrates Jesus' description of himself "I am the Good Shepherd" (from the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 11). This version of the image shows the detail of his face. The memorial window is also captioned: "To the Glory of God and in Loving Memory of William Wright. Died 6th November, 1932. Aged 70 Yrs."

Nowhere in the Constitution is there a reference to divine being.  In fact, the first amendment explicitly forbade the establishment of any official church or creed.  So while many people see an attack or war on Christianity, people are generally just trying to ensure the enforcement of the first amendment.  Do people want Christianity to go away?  How many people would prefer this country to not have any Christians?  Not many. Especially since most of the people are Christian. It’s not that people value Muslims or Atheism. Yes, okay, some Atheists would prefer to see Chrisitianity disappear, but they are a percentage of this minority. I would say, almost universally that people are just valuing the freedom our country is founded on. There is not a confined amount of beliefs in our country. Its not that we have to take someone’s belief away top make room for someone else’s belief. I have not taken any measurements, but I’m sure they will fit. The people accused of making war on Christianity just want to ensure that other people are allowed to practice their religion.
People are afraid that we will become a non-Christian country. That we will turn Muslim. But that is the beauty of our country and our Constitution. It’s why we need to keep religion out of our government and just follow the framework of our founding fathers. Leaders can and should be directed by their religious beliefs, but the laws stop up from becoming a theocracy.

But our founding fathers created our government on the principles of Christianity. We do have the words on our money and such, but what where is it in the constitution?  And okay, lets follow their religios beliefs then.
