In the 1770's every state had an established religion, either Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran etc. The Founding fathers came from Christian backgrounds and saw the USA as a broadly Judeo-Christian society. They were not thinking of Muslims and Hindus. Although the USA had no national church, most of the 13 original colonies did have established churches. The only Catholic state was Maryland and when she passed the Toleration Act, it tolerated all forms of Christianity only! Israel is a Jewish state, but it protects the rights of all faiths.
