His ideas helped in many ways but most importantly his belief in Religious and freedom from government sponsored religion influenced the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. The 1st Amendment (Bill of Rights) protects citizens from having their government dictate religious practices. To paraphrase the 1st Amendment, the government cannot establish a religion and it cannot prevent citizens from establishing a religion. This became known as the "Establishment Clause".
