Edwin Gaustad Quotes: The First Phrase Of The First Amendment

The First Phrase Of The First Amendment Spoke To The Freedom Uppermost In Jefferson's Mind When It Provided That, 'Congress Shall Make No Law Respecting An Establishment Of Religion, Or Prohibiting The Free Exercise Thereof.' Here A Double Guarantee Could Be Found: First, That Government Would Do Nothing To Give Official Endorsement To A Religion Or To Set One Faith Above Another; Second, That Government Would Do Nothing To Inhibit The Freedom Of Religion.
