Thomas Jefferson

April 13, 2043 - July 04, 1826
"In matters of religion, I have considered that its free exercise is placed by the Constitution independent of the powers of the general government. I have therefore undertaken on no occasion to prescribe the religious exercises suited to it; but have left them, as the Constitution found them, under the direction and discipline of state or church authorities acknowledged by the several religious societies."source: Bergh, Writings of Thomas Jefferson, 3:378.freedom of religion, church and state, State's rights
