6. There was a significant religious uprising in the late 40's and 50's

It was basically an extension of the 2nd Red Scare which posits the answer to godless communism is religion. This is when the whitewashing of American secular history began.

It should also be noted that deism was born out of the Age of Enlightenment as an alternative to what we now know as atheism. Many deists were irreligious and effectively atheists if not philosophically so.
