For this assignment, you will read the U.S. Constitution, the  Declaration of Independence, and Thomas Jefferson’s Letter to the  Danbury Baptists in 1802. Once you have read these founding documents  and Jefferson’s letter, you will write a 2–3-page paper (double-spaced,  1-inch margins) in current APA format, comparing each of them. When  comparing the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence, pay  particular attention to the themes apparent in both documents and  comment on which document came first and why that is important.

You must also answer the question, “What  do you think the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the  U.S. Constitution thought about the separation of church and state or  about the separation of God from government?” (Note: these are not the  same thing.)
