First Amendment - Freedom of Religion
The Warren Court used the "establishment clause" to say the government can not permit prayer in schools, while they totally ignored the "free exercise" clause to permit prayer. Also the Warren court "established" a atheist religion in our schools, which is unconstitutional. 

First Amendment:
Establishment Clause & Exception Clause

The Supreme Court is always in danger of creating
new defacto law if it fails to follow the Constitution of the United States.

The Supreme Court vs the US Constitution  

In many of the Supreme Court Cases involving religion in schools, the Justices have used the "Establishment Clause" as a way to over ride the "Free Exercise Clause" in the First Amendment. The reasoning goes that the government owns and operates the schools and they can not favor one religion over any other, for doing so would 'Establish a National Religion.' So they have ruled that no religion that believes in a Creator God can pray, or read the Bible, or post the Ten Commandments while on school property, thus creating an "Exception Clause" to the "Free Exercise Clause",where none had existed before! Also in doing so, as Justice Potter Stewart pointed out in his descending opinion,  the courts ruling actually favors and Establishs a Secular Religion in the country. And the Supreme Court has recognized Atheism as a religion. So the Supreme Court was falling all over itself not to favor one religion, but it ended up doing just that; favoring Atheism over all other religions! Thus the Court established the National Atheist Church of America which it continually guards and and defends.

The Supreme Court is always in danger of creating new laws with its rulings. This appears to be what happened with the 4 sighted cases of 1962, 1963 and 1980 from the (Supreme Court Rulings Web Page). The Supreme Court in effect added an exception clause to the First Amendment.  The exception clause in effect said you are free to worship, pray, or read the Bible except if you are on school property.  Altering the First Amendment with an exception clause is not within the powers of the Judicial Branch of the Government. Article V of the Constitutions defines the process by which the Constitution can be altered.* Sadly, the Supreme Court has repeated the same mistake in numerous cases since 1962. 

A large number of Christian Churches of many various Protestant denominations, Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox Catholics, Eastern Orthodox Churches all believe in a creator God. Jews around the world believe in a Creator God, same as Christians. Jews and Christians share a common heritage reading from the same text of the Old Testament. Also Muslims believe in a God and claim to be descended from Abraham same as the Jews. The Hindus believe in many gods. Many surveys in America have shown that the majority believe there is a God, a Heaven and a Hell. Just a small minority of Americans believe there is no God. One has to wonder why the Supreme Court chose to support Atheism of which only 5 to 10 percent of the population adheres to, over the vast majority of American who do believe in God and want their children to be able to pray, and learn from the Bible.      

While the First Amendment states the government shall not interfere with the people's right to worship, the Supreme Court has seen itself as the arbitrator of when and how citizens can worship. As William Murray has written, who was the plaintiff in the 1963 Murray v Curlett case, "The Supreme Court has turned the First Amendment on its head."

On the next two pages you will see the negative impacts these court rulings have had on our school system and the nation as a whole.
