Separation trumps freedom

Last week Recliner Commentaries reported on two students who had been expelled for publicly praying for their professor who was ill. This morning the students will be on Fox and Friends.

The first amendment of the Constitution specifically guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of religion. How did we come to a place where a phrase about "separation of church and state" in a private letter (the meaning of which is hotly debated) has come to trump the specific guarantees of freedom in our Constitution? Americans should really be outraged at this!
