Yes, I was going to add to that post but I was tired.
James Madison also had some interesting thoughts:
"During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What has been its fruits? More or less, in all places, pride and indolence in the clergy; ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry, and persecution."
"In no instance have . . . the churches been guardians of the liberties of the people."
"Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise." April 1, 1774
Makes you wonder how such enlightened and progressive thinking could have gone so horribly into reverse in recent times.
