    The teacher, who said she teaches the constitution, gets angry when she is told she is wrong about separation of church and state being in the constitution. LOL...gotta love liberals.

    She doesn't need to see the constitution because she teaches it. If it doesn't say what she thinks it says, then the constitution must be wrong. It would be interesting to find out where she teaches, if she really is a teacher.

    More to the point, her job is to deceive children about the Constitution, and she takes it very seriously.

    Jefferson seemed to be more in line with the teacher than the folks on this thread.

    Jefferson and the Bill of Rights
    In English, the exact term is an offshoot of the phrase, "wall of separation between church and state", as written in Thomas Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802. In that letter, referencing the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, Jefferson writes: "Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church and State." Jefferson reflected his frequent speaking theme that the government is not to interfere with religion.[1]

    Jefferson's letter is itself the tangible proof that the term does not originate from the Constitution, but leaving that aside, it is also the proof that the phrase was written in reference to a different clause of the first amendment than the one for which the phrase has been purloined. The wall he described was to protect religious free exercise from the government, not about the establishment clause. Insofar as there is a "wall", it is a cage, a cell to shackle the government running roughshod over the religious rights of the people.

    Of course it is intended to keep the govt from running roughshod over the religious rights of the people. Explicitly by protecting the rights of people to freely exercise their religious beliefs, and for the govt to be excluded from establishment of religion.

    We can play semantic games with whether that's a wall or a cage or a cell, but either way it's clear that the govt is to stay out of religion.

    The only thing I can even think of to argue about wrt the OP is whether "separation of church and state" is a phrase that is explicitly stated in the Constitution (not sure the teacher thinks they were discussing the concept or a specific phrase). Of course, we know it isn't.

    But if the language has the effect of separating church and state, what is there to argue about?

    Freedom of religion is NOT freedom from religion.

    We Americans enjoyed the right to freely practice our faith(s) for some 200 years, until the far left decided that their "religion" was the only one that should be practiced.

    Jefferson was more for government not destroying human life than for the separation of church and state. Which is why you don't hear too many pro-aborts quote Jefferson.
