Christianity ought to receive encouragement . . .

  • “At the time of the adoption of the constitution, and of the amendment to it, now under consideration [i.e., the First Amendment], the general, if not the universal sentiment in America was, that Christianity ought to receive encouragement from the state, so far as was not incompatible with the private rights of conscience, and the freedom of religious worship.” ~Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States p. 593
