~Notes and additional information
Even though this “America was founded as a christian nation” delusion has been debunked, it wouldn’t matter if it were true. It wouldn’t matter if 100% of the “founders” were priests. It would’t matter if god and jesus infested every sentence of our constitution. Society has evolved. The 28th Amendment will clean up the oppression of religion from our government.

If a church wants to help people, help them. Don’t exploit downtrodden people for future financial gain. If churches want their charities to double as a promoting institution, taxes will apply. Otherwise, the government would be aiding in the promotion of religion.
This Amendment will save the country billions of dollars per year. All money saved will support all the nonreligious organizations that already exist, that perform related functions of such religious organizations. This will allow these secular organizations to expand. All money will be regulated and monitored; while no longer being filtered into religious extremist groups or funding other religious agendas.
Parents and religious organizations can preach the misinformation of Creationism and Intelligent Design on their own time.
The Complete Case Against the Christian Scheme of “Education” School Vouchers or the Government Funding of Teaching Religion, while cutting Public Education Funding and the Steady Erosion of Separation of Church and State
Currently, there are 216 religion-related advocacy groups operating in the nation’s capital.
In the United States, seven state constitutions officially include religious tests that would effectively prevent atheists from holding public office, and in some cases being a juror/witness.
In 1961, the United States Supreme Court explicitly overturned the Maryland provision in the Torcaso v. Watkins decision, holding that laws requiring “a belief in the existence of God” in order to hold public office violated freedom of religion provided for by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Did you know that atheists can’t hold public office in 7 states?
Arkansas, Article 19, Section 1:
Atheists disqualified from holding office or testifying as witness.
No person who denies the being of a God shall hold any office in the civil departments of this State, nor be competent to testify as a witness in any Court.
Maryland, Article 37:
That no religious test ought ever to be required as a qualification for any office of profit or trust in this State, other than a declaration of belief in the existence of God; nor shall the Legislature prescribe any other oath of office than the oath prescribed by this Constitution.
Mississippi, Article 14, Section 265:
No person who denies the existence of a Supreme Being shall hold any office in this state.
Pennsylvania, Article I, Section 4:
No person who acknowledges the being of a God and a future state of rewards and punishments shall, on account of his religious sentiments, be disqualified to hold any office or place of trust or profit under this Commonwealth.
South Carolina, Article 17, Section 4:
No person who denies the existence of a Supreme Being shall hold any office under this Constitution.
Tennessee, Article 9, Section 2:
No person who denies the being of God, or a future state of rewards and punishments, shall hold any office in the civil department of this state.
Texas, Article 1, Section 4:
No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office, or public trust, in this State; nor shall any one be excluded from holding office on account of his religious sentiments, provided he acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being.
