1268. CHURCH AND STATE, Support of.—[continued].

The forcing a man to
support this or that teacher even of his own
religious persuasion, is depriving him of the
comfortable liberty of giving his contributions
to the particular pastor whose morals he
would make his pattern, and whose powers he
feels most persuasive to righteousness; and is
withdrawing from the ministry those temporary
rewards, which, proceeding from an
approbation of their personal conduct, are an
additional incitement to earnest and unremitting
labors for the instruction of mankind.—
Statute of Religious Freedom. Washington ed. viii, 454. Ford ed., ii, 238.
