7220. RELIGION, Federal government and.—[further continued].

I do not believe it is for
the interest of religion to invite the civil magistrate
to direct its exercises, its discipline,
or its doctrines; nor of the religious societies,
that the General Government should be invested
with the power of effecting any uniformity
of time or matter among them.—
To Rev. Samuel Miller. Washington ed. v, 237. Ford ed., ix, 175.
(W. 1808)
