First Amendment Quiz

Who argued that the appointment of congressional chaplains, a tradition that continues to this day, is a violation of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:

"Is the appointment of chaplains to the two houses of Congress consistent with the Constitution, and with the pure principle of religious freedom? In . . . strictness the answer on both points must be in the negative."
a. James Madison, framer of the First Amendment
b. Nadine Strossen, ACLU President
c. Al Gore, former U.S. Senator
d. William Brennan, former U.S. Supreme Court justice
Guess before doing a Google search :-)
