The fight against the "Christian Nation" propaganda doesn't much rest on Article 11 anyway. I know of three ways of debunking the "Christian Nation" view.

The first is that the constitution has no concessions to religion in it. The founders could have make a theocratic government but they didn't.

The second is to look at the source of the ideas.

The third is to do a point by point rebuttal of the claims make by Xn historians, such as David Barton. See the only book of this kind that I know of: Liars for Jesus by Chris Rodda. Chris is also a researcher for the Military Religious Freedom Foundation which attempts to stop the evangelicals from turning the U.S. military into "God's Army." She has a new series of "No, Mr. Beck..." videos countering the stuff put out on TV by the recent team up of Beck and David Barton. She has links to these videos on her book's web page, but I'll put a YouTube link here to one that shows how Xn Nation propaganda works. Video: No, Mr. Beck, Congress Did Not Print a Bible for the Use of Schools. You will be shocked!
