1st Extract from Notes on the State of Virginia [Query XVII, “Religion”] - Thomas Jefferson

This quote was added by theodeath
The error seems not sufficiently eradicated, that the operations of the mind, as well as the acts of the body, are subjects to the coercion of the laws. But our rulers can have authority over such natural rights only as we have submitted to them. The rights of conscience we never submitted, we could not submit. We are answerable for them to our God.
