Why the founders established a wall between church and state

Next some theofascist will pray an "apology" for letting blacks vote and women work.

Why christians should care:

Whenever there's a state-sponsored prayer or any other official religious event, it's unconstitutional. Nothing could be clearer than what the Constitution says several times on this matter. To understand why, ask yourself, "Whose prayer? Whose preacher? Whose agenda? Why one and not another?"

One group of "christians" could pray for a return to slavery, saying the Bible supports that "peculiar institution." Another group could pray thanks for the end of slavery, citing that Moses led the Israelites out of bondage in Egypt. Is one group's rightness over the other proved merely by having the political power to put forth its agenda while quashing the other's?
