"...or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

Dude. Come on. That's not a leftist interpretation, it's it says and meant.

Oh nuts well I guess rape is legal then huh. Because rape is expressly condoned and recommended as punishments in the Surahs. Along with instructions on how to beat your female slaves in a manner that doesn't hurt their resale value. And a vast number of other inestimably vile things, any one of which justifies exterminating their vile ideology.

Please tell me, how many Muslims were there in the Colonies in 1776? Because if there aren't any, then none of them, ever, are the providence of the American people that the Founders themselves established as the basis for our code of laws.

And you still haven't answered the point about why non white immigration was outright banned, something that effectively created a ban on Muslims entering the nation.

Alright fuck it, I agree. It should be a white country, and you make three very good points here.

Well argued.

Thank you. The point I'm trying to make is to understand what America was intended to be, you have view things in the context of what the Founders meant and what they did.

When the 1st Amendment was crafted they had just beaten a nation whose monarch was the head of state and head of their mandatory religion. That is the situation they had in mind when the 1st Amendment was crafted, the situation they wanted to avoid. They very expressly did not want a "Church of England 2.0."

But the Founders despised Islam and Muslims. Our very first foreign war as a nation was against them. The portion of the Marine Corps Anthem that says "the shores of Tripoli" has to do with Jefferson sending the Marine Corps on a punitive expedition against Islamic pirates who were enslaving American trading ship crews. Shortly after this war, foreign immigration was completely banned save for "people of good character" from majority white nations.
