B. The establishment clause and the due process clause
C. The establishment clause and the free exercise clause
D. The religious tests clause and the due process clause
Answer by It’s That Guy
C. Establishment clause and free exercise clause. This means that government (1) can’t establish an official religion for the country and (2) can’t make any laws that affect the free exercise of religion.
There is a religious tests clause in the Constitution itself, saying that there can be no religious tests to hold office, meaning that you can’t be excluded from holding office if you belong to, or don’t belong to, any particular religion.
