It's not quite that simple. The wording of the actual ratified 1st Amendment is not 100% in line with the way many people like to interpret SOCAS. There are many who seek to use SOCAS as a means to banish the Church from the public square. But in the spirit of "Free exercise thereof" that's a much harder argument to make.

There's a large contingent out there who would rather just replace in the national conscience what the 1st Amendment actually says about freedom of religion with 5 words Thomas Jefferson once wrote in a letter.
