New Page 1

 

H. J. Res. 46 — a constitutional amendment restoring religious freedom— was introduced in the 108th Congress. That Amendment declares:

To secure the people’s right to acknowledge God according to the dictates
of conscience:

The people retain the right to pray and to recognize their religious beliefs,
heritage, and traditions on public property, including schools.

The United States and the States shall not establish any official religion
nor require any person to join in prayer or religious activity.

The “Religious Freedom Amendment” is far too important to die a
slow
and obscure political death. Therefore, for the sake of this generation — as
well as future ones — we should heed the advice of John Hancock:

I [urge] you by all that is dear, by all that is honorable, by all
that
is sacred, not only that ye pray but that ye act.
