HOW COULD 50 STATES BE WRONG?

I got this from my cousin. Actually, I am a firm believer in the separation of church and state since there are churches that have greatly set back science, ie. The catholic church when the imprisioned Galalleo for proclaiming the earth was round. When I read the argument, I thought, many of these are prayers. So in my opinion do not make a good argument. But I will let you decide:

Somewhere along the way, the Federal Courts and the Supreme Court
have misinterpreted the U. S. Constitution. How could fifty States be wrong?


THIS IS VERY INTERESTING! America's founders did not intend for there
to be a separation of God and state, as shown by the fact that all 50 states acknowledge God in their state constitutions:
