How do you feel about the messages on these T-shirts? How do you interpret Thomas Jefferson's idea of a "wall of separation" between church and state? While there are references to God on our money, on our government buildings, in our oaths, etc., at what point do such references infringe upon the free exercise of religion as put forth in the First Amendment? Do you think the ideas our forefathers put forth kept only variations of Christian faiths in mind? If so, should all references to God be removed, or would you like to see the United States formally declared a Christian nation? Has the evolution of religious belief changed our social fabric? For better or worse?
