When the discussion of religious freedom comes up in the media, in your private conversations, etc., that term “Separation of Church and

State” is always used to define the religious nature of our country.

But, no matter how many times I have searched in the U.S. Constitution, I have been unable to find these words. Let’s look at the first amendment and see what freedoms are outlined therein.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assembly, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Did you read the words, “separation of Church and State”? No! Rather the U.S. Constitution says that Congress may not make a law and establish a religion, and further it says that we are free to exercise our religion.

That is different than “separation of Church and State”... we are free to worship our God as we see fit and also the freedom to not worship if that is our desire, but the Congress cannot establish a religion that all must follow.

Does this change your feelings about the religious nature of our country?

Now let’s look to the other freedoms as outlined in this very important First Amendment and they are as follows:

Freedom of Speech

Where would we be as a country if we did not have freedom of speech? We are free to express ourselves as we see fit and we must also be aware that others are free to express themselves, even when they don’t agree with our standards. Freedom of speech is important!

Freedom of the Press

We are a country that has freedom of the press and the right to again express ourselves. We must not have a government that tells the newspapers, the TV, radio, and other media outlets what to say and when to say it. It is important to have this freedom and we must always be mindful and respect it.

Freedom to peaceably assemble

In some countries the people cannot gather to express themselves, but we have a constitutional right to peaceable assemble and express our views. Again, let’s not ever forget this very important right.

Freedom to redress the government

We have a U.S. Constitution that gives all citizens the right to express ourselves directly to the government. Have you ever written a letter or made a phone call to your congressman or senators and expressed your views on some subject? If so, you have taken advantage of this very important freedom.

Let’s read and study the U.S. Constitution and learn our rights and make sure that we don’t lose them because we don’t know what they are. The freedoms that we enjoy were given to us by our Founding Fathers at the direction of our God and our freedoms are so valuable. Let’s protect them always!
