QAWERICA stands as the world’s greatest monument to Religion and
to Faith. However, unlike most monuments, it is one that was never built.
It is a living monument that has grown. . - *
Our country was founded because a band of freedom-loving eople insisted .
on the right to go about their daily lives thinking and believing and worship
ping openly according to their own conscience and. not according to «the
dictation of some arbitrary authority. Consequently, there can be no place
in America today for even the thought of any social order that would impose
upon or hamper the individual’s spiritual beliefs.
The sacredness of the individual’s right to worship in his'own way is forever
instflled in all real Americans and in their children. Respect for this right

and tolerance for the other fellow’s beliefs are principles that form two of
the staunchest pillars of our Democracy”
The preservation of religious freedom as one of the inviolable rights carried
America through the hardships of early colonial days, through the sacrifices
of the War of 'the Revolution and through the troubled days 'of the first
Federal Government. Always it has been faith in the Divine and devotion to
” individual freedom that have kept our country moving steadily ahead to the
place of leadership among the nations of the world and now to the. task of
saving them. ' , '
Approximately two hundred thousand religious organizations and churches
of some two hundred and fifty different faiths bear witness to the freedom
and the vitality of Religion in America. Its teachings and its practices have
influenced our people to live better and more useful lives, not just for their
own sake, but for their fellowmen and for their country. Religion asks that
the individual treat his fellowman as his brother and to be an example to
him. All real Americans realize what this freedom of Religion means to us“
as individuals and as a nation and will safeguard it everlastingly for us and
for all the world. l
