The "wall of separation" language from Thomas Jefferson's letter of reassurance to a nervous religious group was never the law until 1947, when the phrase was picked up by the Supreme Court and used in its first venture into the Establishment Clause, Everson v. Board of Education. It's worth noting that Justice Hugo Black, who wrote the Everson decision, had been a Klan official in Alabama and had no love lost on the Catholic Church.
So it's a little surprising that the Court upheld the authority of a New Jersey school board, acting pursuant to a state law, to reimburse parents for the cost of transporting their children to Catholic schools. What Everson is noted for is its thorough discussion of the meaning of the Establishment Clause, and for the fact all nine justices agreed it was meant to do something more than just prevent Congress from establishing an official U.S. religion.
The Court's Establishment Clause decisions since Everson have made the "wall" between church and state into more of a flexible, permeable barrier.

Yea, some " Christian " he was.
