I've begun to see more frequent associations between an improved USA and a strict belief in Jesus. It's seeped into our social networks and even entering into our political discussions. Yet, at the same time everyone is retreating behind the Constitution to defend controversial claims. 

So I ask: "If there is so much attention being placed on the constitution, why is the 1st amendment so easily ignored?" According to the authors of the Constitution, the United States is not a Christian nation, nor is it a Jewish nation, or any other denomination nation. It is pluralistic nation based on all religions.
