The founding fathers, in writing the establishment clause were afraid the government would actively start its own church (think Henry the VIII), however, they never intended for religion to be excluded from the public square (Thomas Jefferson attended Sunday services in the rotunda of the capitol). Blocking access of religion from the public square is just another step in removing we, the people, from our government that allows our leaders to establish themselves as sole arbiters of our fate (which, in essence, could be considered a form of religion).
