The phrase is commonly thought to mean that the government should not establish, support, or otherwise involve itself in any religion.


Nice link...goes in my favorites which means I'll never see another Constitution question.
Amendment 1 - 12/15/1791.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
