I agree with much of what you wrote, except the Founders weren't Deists. Some of them were influenced by Deism, some of them were even more independent in their thinking, and some of them held quite orthodox religious views. What counts is that whatever their religious beliefs (or lack thereof) the MAJORITY believed in separation of Church and State. That's why they crafted a Constitution based on that principle.
