Actually, they address religion in three parts of the Constitution. We most readily know of the First amendment. Some even understand the sixth article with allows for an oath of public office, but forbids using religion as a test of qualification for that office.
And I noticed as I am reading Religion Gone Bad, where the preamble is presented: We the people of the United States … do ordain this Constitution. ~«
