Congress Holds Hearings on Theology

Why is a House Judiciary Committee holding hearings on theology? Seriously, why? It can't be legal. Just look at the reality here - some Christian faith based attorneys want to warn Congressman their is a war on religion in America. 

The Chair Bob Goodlatte of the committee said:

"Indeed, the founding fathers feared the effect of government on the free exercise of religion.  In a letter dated June 12, 1812 to Benjamin Rush, John Adams stated that ‘[n]othing is more dreaded than the National Government meddling with Religion.’

And then he meddles with it.

Here is the video of Congressman Louie Gohmert demanding a pastor accept his view of Christianity. Why is this Congressional business?

That witness has his say afterwards:

"t got even stranger. Soon Gohmert was talking about a “Seinfeld” episode where the character Elaine became upset to learn that her boyfriend was a Christian. This led to the real zinger: “Do you believe in sharing the good news that will keep people from going to hell consistent with the Christian beliefs?”

How can these hearings be legal?
