    I have a strong belief that our country was not founded on religious principles. I as the founding fathers believed that church and state should be completely separate. I think it is wrong that religious organizations are even allowed tax free status, let alone tax break on retirement accounts. I do not support this bill and it should not of even been introduced. George Washington stated that there should not be a Chaplin in congress, and now there is. Religion does not belong with the making of any law, period.
