I agree completely with SpidermanTUba on all points.
This "face your accuser" shite is null and void. It's a civil offense. The U.S. Constitutional protection on facing your accuser applies only to criminal offenses.

Most incorporation happened in the 20th century.
And the 14th was ratified in 1868, not 1865.

Jax, like Moss wrote, the Fourteenth Amendment's equal protection clause stopped states' ability to establish an official religion, but most of that happened in the 20th century (hence, my reference to 1947).
