freedom of religion was put in the constitution so that folks could be heretics (baptists ) if they wanted and the church of England or anyone else couldn't fault them for it.
it's practically how Georgia was populated.
No. The First amendment has nothing to do with Christians in particular. It applies to all religious practice.

Other than being one of the more tolerant Colonies, I have no idea what populating Georgia has to do with freedom of religion. Much less what it has to do with Dick's selling guns. All thirteen demanded religious freedom in constructing the Constitution. Again, you just make sh!t up.

Our Constitution was based on "natural law". The majesty of the first amendment is that it was created by white Christians and yet does not carve out a special right for them, but for all faiths and creeds. This truth is undeniable.

And yet, you insist.

BTW; Colonial Georgia banned Catholics. So they were not all that tolerant.

that is why they included it

they had had experience with non Anglican church groups being shunned or even worse
so yes applying that to today's variety of faiths, it means basically the same thing-that you cannot force me to abide by your creed; I cannot force you to live under the by-laws of my faith.

I have misjudged you. I thought you were simply uninformed about the facts of history. You're just a mean, sick person.
