Article VI 2nd paragraph reads as follows:
“This Constitution, and the Laws of the united states which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary not with-standing.” http://www.earlyamerica.com/earlyamerica/freedom/constitution/text.html
The treaty was a routine diplomatic agreement but has gained attention because the English version included a clause about religion in America:
“As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion, as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen, and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.”
the Treaty of Tripoli (1797) Article 11: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Tripoli
… the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; is, according to the Constitution, the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND.
