Virginia Constitution - Christian Practice Is Our Duty

The Constitution of the state of Virginia (1776) says:

Bill of Rights, XVI:
"That religion or the duty which we owe our Creator, and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and, therefore, all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience; and that it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity towards each other."
