"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

In this single statement, we can already make a note that the reference to "establishment[s]" is not any single religion, but in reality it is concerning the Christian denominations, which are establishments in this branch of religion.
Getting away from that though, the original reason for the first amendment is because the founding fathers observed the insanity of religious arguments in Europe and sought to avoid it in their own nation, especially due to the fact that the USA was so much more diverse than the European nations. There were almost a dozen popular forms of Christianity in the new nation, including Lutheranism, Baptist churches, Anglicanism, Judaism (not Christianity but...), Roman Catholics, and the list goes on. Needless to say, it was almost assured that the argument of the European monarchs would float their way to the new continent and the leaders at that point proposed an amendment that would ensure that all the denominations of Christianity could get along and that religious freedom for all people that served the Christian God and gave their heart to Jesus Christ could be protected by the government, no matter if the nation was a majority Catholic or Protestant.
There is absolutely no way the then leaders could have predicted that the US might be accepting 50,000 Muslims or more into our nation, nor could they have known that Hinduism or Confucianism may have existed at all! George Washington never went to India! He never travelled to Arabia to experience the violence in the region (beheadings in the hundreds because... you know... religious freedom right?).
Finally, there are tens of hundreds of references (if not thousands) to the Christian God throughout the government documents of America and if this isn't showing dedication to one God, I don't know what is.
To end, God bless America and may he guide all you readers to finding the truth.

A big factor for Godv in the constitution is that the founding fathers use God as the giver of rights, "god given rights", thus taking power away from the government and the concept of government granted rights. Pretty brilliant move, imo.

Thomas Jefferson read the Qu'ran, and even made treaties with Muslim nations where he specified that the US does not discriminate against Muslims.

Even the Scots know the difference!

What I am trying to say is that everyone outside of the US knows the difference between the continent America and the nation America.

The full name is The United States of America. Thus "America" is acceptable shorthand.

Talk about it when we speak Latin.

And yeah, calling it the US or USA is even worse - there's more than one "US" or "USA".

actually it is like saying the EU is "Europe", it isn't since it is not actually all of what Europe should be (many European countries aren't part of it). Same can be said about the US and America.

The difference here is, Europe does not have two names.

It's like saying you can't call Austria Austria, you must call it the Austrian Republic as it does not include all of Austria as a cultural site (Südtirol).

If America is not a country, what do you call folk from the U.S.A.?

Europe is a plague upon any grounded thinking at all.

Murica is just a pejorative form, its like saying Yurop to people from the EU.

and as I said Juq, English is one of the few languages (if not the only one!) to not have an official form referring to the people inhabiting the US, in French we can use "Les états-Uniens" (although we use more Les Américains), and in Spanish "Los Estados-Unidenses" (which is more used in Spanish here), or "Meiguoren" (people of the US) in Chinese, instead of Meizhouren for the people of the American continent.
