Historical background[ edit ] Constitutions of Clarendon[ edit ] The Constitutions of Clarendona 12th century English law, had prohibited criminal defendants' using religious laws at that time, in medieval England, canon law of the Roman Catholic Church to seek exemption from criminal prosecution.
Colonial New Jersey and Pennsylvania Constitutions[ edit ] The original Mason-Dixon line was the demarcation line between the Catholic colony of Maryland and the New Jersey and Pennsylvania colonies, which followed the Bill of Rights and their own colonial constitutions which provided similar protections against the establishment of Catholic laws in government.
Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom[ edit ] Main article: The statute was drafted by Thomas Jefferson in and was introduced in the Virginia General Assembly in It did not pass the General Assembly until James Madison played an important role in its passage.
The statute disestablished the Church of England in Virginia and guaranteed freedom of religion exercise to men of all religious faiths, including Catholics and Jews as well as members of all Protestant denominations.
United States Bill of Rights[ edit ] See also: The idea of adding a Bill of Rights to the Constitution was proposed by George Mason five days before the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention held in Philadelphia in Alexander Hamilton later argued in The Federalist Papers that a Bill of Rights was unnecessary, claiming that since the Constitution granted limited powers to the federal government, it did not grant the new government the power to abuse the rights that would be secured by a Bill of Rights.
Later, six more states likewise recommended the addition of a Bill of Rights, and the idea also gained the support of Jefferson and Madison. When the First Federal Congress met inMadison implemented the idea by introducing 17 Amendments to the Constitution.
By Decemberten of his Amendments were ratified by the necessary three quarters of the states, and they became part of the US Constitution, thereafter becoming known as "the Bill of Rights".
The Baptists in Virginiafor example, had suffered discrimination prior to the disestablishment of the Anglican church in As Virginia prepared to hold its elections to the state ratifying convention inthe Baptists were concerned that the Constitution had no safeguard against the creation of a new national church.
Barbour requested to John Lelandan influential Baptist preacher and fervent lifelong proponent of religious liberty, that he write a letter to Barbour outlining his objections to the proposed Constitution.
In any event, Leland cast his vote for Madison. Leland's support, according to Scarberry, was likely key to the landslide victory of Madison and Gordon. Incorporation of the Bill of Rights Prior to the enactment of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution inthe Supreme Court generally held that the substantive protections of the Bill of Rights did not apply to state governments.
Subsequently, under the Incorporation doctrinethe Bill of Rights has been broadly applied to limit state and local government as well. The process of incorporating the two Religion Clauses in the First Amendment was twofold.
The first step was the Supreme Court's conclusion in that the Free Exercise Clause was made applicable to the states through the Fourteenth Amendment.
The federal government had funded a hospital operated by a Roman Catholic institution. In the twentieth century, the Supreme Court more closely scrutinized government activity involving religious institutions. Board of Educationthe Supreme Court upheld a New Jersey statute funding student transportation to schools, whether parochial or not.
Justice Hugo Black held, The "establishment of religion " clause of the First Amendment means at least this: Neither a state nor the federal government can set up a church.
Neither can pass laws which aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another. Neither can force nor influence a person to go to or to remain away from church against his will or force him to profess a belief or disbelief in any religion.
No person can be punished for entertaining or professing religious beliefs or disbeliefs, for church attendance or non-attendance. No tax in any amount, large or small, can be levied to support any religious activities or institutions, whatever they may be called, or whatever form they may adopt to teach or practice religion.
Neither a state nor the Federal Government can, openly or secretly, participate in the affairs of any religious organizations or groups and vice versa. In the words of Jeffersonthe clause against establishment of religion by law was intended to erect "a wall of separation between church and State.
Rehnquist have argued that the majority of states did have "official" churches at the time of the First Amendment's adoption and that James Madisonnot Jefferson, was the principal drafter. However, Madison himself often wrote of "perfect separation between the ecclesiastical and civil matters" letter to Livingstonwhich means the authority of the church that which comes from the church is decided by church authority, and that which is decided in civil government is decided by civil authorities; neither may decree law or policy in each other's realm.Short Paragraph/Speech on “Respecting Elders” Complete Paragraph or Speech for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation and other classes.
