Many people threatening him claimed he had kidnapped Jesus.

A good number of people take this very seriously, and think those crackers are LITERALLY Jesus' body.

I agree with Prowess: many of the founding fathers were very secular, and many were religious. The main point is, to protect all of their views, they set up a very secular government that protects the rights of the minority.
Shows you how much I paid attention in Sunday school and confirmation class.
