Otherwise, I agree with your comment except for your 'minority' comment. A majority of people believe what they do and a separation of church and state was to protect the different sects of that majority belief from the minority (government) control who they feared would establish a national 'religion'.

"Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separation between Church & State."
