"We hold it for a fundamental and undeniable truth, that religion,
or the duty we owe our Creator and the manner of discharging it,
can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence.
The religion then of every man must be left to the conviction and
conscience of every man; and it is the right of every man to exercise it
as these may dictate. This right is in its nature an unalienable right."
