"Our sentiments are uniformly on

the side of religious liberty: that religion is at all

times and places a matter between God and individuals,

that no man ought to suffer in name, person, or effects

on account of his religious opinions, [and] that the legitimate power of civil government extends no further than to punish the man who works ill to his neighbor. But sir, our constitution of government is not specific. . . . [T]herefore what religious privileges we enjoy (as

a minor part of the State) we enjoy as favors

granted, and not as inalienable rights."

adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see

with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties. I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection and blessing of the common Father and

Creator of man, and tender you for yourselves and

your religious association assurances of my

high respect and esteem."

"The affectionate sentiments of esteem

and approbation which you are so good as to

express towards me on behalf of the Danbury

solely between man and his God; that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship; that the legislative powers of government reach actions only and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting

"On every question of construction

(of the Constitution) let us carry ourselves

back to the time when the Constitution was

adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the

24 So God abandoned them to do

Whatever shameful things their hearts

desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading

things with each other’s bodies.25 They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen.26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful

desires. Even the women turned against the

natural way to have sex and instead indulged

in sex with each other.

27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.
