Despite being guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Constitution, religious liberty is in the crosshairs of many of our most powerful elected officials. But our Founding Fathers were very clear about ensuring religious liberty for all Americans.
Here are 7 quotes from our Founding Fathers concerning religious liberty which you should know.
“Nothing is more dreaded than the national government meddling with religion.” —John Adams, in a letter to Benjamin Rush. 1812
“[T]hat the opinions of men are not the object of civil government, nor under its jurisdiction; that to suffer the civil magistrate to intrude his powers into the field of opinion and to restrain the profession or propagation of principles on supposition of their ill tendency is a dangerous fallacy, which at once destroys all religious liberty.” —Thomas Jefferson, 1779.
