Chief Justice Richard Storey on Religion and Liberty

James Madison ("Father of the Constitution") appointed Richard Storey to the Supreme Court. Storey said the following about religion's importance to society and our country:

"There is not a truth to be gathered from history more certain, or more momentous, than this: that civil liberty cannot long be separated from religious liberty without danger, and ultimately without destruction to both.

"Wherever religious liberty exists, it will, first or last, bring in and establish political liberty."
