    Joan… may I introduce you to the First Amendment of the US Constitution, which reads: “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.”

    The key phrase is “make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” This part means that the government can’t take sides when it comes to neutral and must be neutral.

    Yes, that includes freedom from religion, which protects not only atheists and agnostics but also those who are members of non-majority religious traditions.

    Now, I will agree with you on one part. The First Amendment does protect the freedom “to worship as one wishes.” That is the second clause of the religion part, often called the “free exercise clause.” The issue was not the fact that the chapel was going to have a VBS program, but rather the placement of a banner at the main gate that implied endorsement of said VBS program.
