FREEDOM OF RELIGION
[ Also see Freedom Religion ]

I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separtion between church and State.
      - Thomas Jefferson,
        in a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association

The number, the industry, and the morality of the priesthood, and the devotion of the people have been manifestly increased by the total separation of the church from the state.
      - James Madison, in Boston, 1819

The wall of separation between church and state is a metaphor based on bad history.
      - Justice William H. Rehnquist
