Freedom of Religion

The constitutional freedom of religion is the most inalienable and sacred of all human rights

Thomas Jefferson
 

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Thomas Jefferson
 

Because we hold it for 'a fundamental and undeniable truth', that religion or 'the duty which we owe to our Creator' and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence.

James Madison
 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

James Madison
 

No power over the freedom of religion [is] delegated to the United States by the Constitution.

James Madison
 

We have staked the whole future of our new nation, not upon the power of government; far from it. We have staked the future of all our political constitutions upon the capacity of each of ourselves to govern ourselves according to the moral principles of the Ten Commandments.

James Madison
 

Power always thinks... that it is doing God's service when it is violating all his laws.

John Adams
 

No book in the world deserves to be so unceasingly studied, and so profoundly meditated upon as the Bible.

John Quincy Adams
 

The future and success of America is not in this Constitution, but in the laws of God upon which this Constitution is founded.

James Madison

Life is a hard battle anyway. If we laugh and sing a little as we fight the good fight of freedom, it makes it all go easier. I will not allow my life's light to be determined by the darkness around me.
