Cunningham was raised as a Presbyterian during his formative years in Memphis, Tennessee. Cunningham’s strong faith and devotion governs his personal life and actions, but he strongly respects the separation of church and state, and possesses a deep understanding of the “Establishment of Religion” clause of the First Amendment introduced by Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson wrote — and Cunningham wholeheartedly agrees — that one specific denomination should not be designated the state religion; one person’s faith should not supersede another in status, decree or in an official capacity, as it causes division, fear and resentment amongst Americans.
