Where are the words "separation or church and state " in the Constitution anyways? The simple truth is, it's not there.

Reword your beliefs, explain them all you wish. It does not change the fact this country was founded giving you the right to believe how you wish. However the government was not designed to endorse, condone or reject any belief. As in neutral~
The govt is NOT forcing you to believe in God either. The Constitution does NOT guarantee freedom from religion either. It's supposed to restrain the federal govt—not local values. Many state's still had official state churches at the time of ratification and well into the 19th century. Some of those issues got mixed in because of the abuse of the 14th amendment using incorporation.

And the Pledge is a declaration of allegiance to the state. No wonder a socialist wrote the original version. That's their higher authority who grants rights.
