SMB2811: North Carolina was going to try just that
http://www.wral.com/proposal-supports-state-religion-in-north-caroli na /12296876/

"SECTION 1. The North Carolina General Assembly asserts that the Constitution of the United States of America does not prohibit states or their subsidiaries from making laws respecting an establishment of religion.

SECTION 2. The North Carolina General Assembly does not recognize federal court rulings which prohibit and otherwise regulate the State of North Carolina, its public schools or any political subdivisions of the State from making laws respecting an establishment of religion."

It died though

Stupidity, a lack of education, and willful ignorance, I mean we are talking about religious people here.

The real question is, how can christianity be the official religion when Bill O'Reilly told me christianity isn't a religion, it's a philosophy?

How about this... We ask God.

If he descends from heaven in his glory that cannot be mistaken for anyone else and tells us which religion he chooses as "the religion of the USA" then we go with that. No questions, no debates, that will be it for ever and ever.

If he doesn't show in three days, we can take that as an absolute "No farking way". Okay? Let's go, say it with me...

"Hey God! What religion do you want us to follow as "The religion of the USA"? If you don't show up in three days, we'll have to take your answer to be "not any religion at all". Please let us know quickly! Thank you. (Amen.)"

It's all in the Lord's hands.

It says that slightly more than a third of U.S. adults favor establishing Christianity as an official religion of their state.  The 1st Amendment only prohibits Congress from establishing a religion.  It was not intended to prevent state establishments.
