[the clergy suffer from...]"that delusion on the clause of the
constitution, which, while it secured the freedom of the press, covered
also the freedom of religion, had given to the clergy a very favorite hope
of obtaining an establishment of a particular form of Christianity thro'
the U. S.; and as every sect believes its own form the true one, every one
perhaps hoped for his own, but especially the Episcopalians &
Congregationalists. The returning good sense of our country threatens
abortion to their hopes, & they believe that any portion of power confided
to me, will be exerted in opposition to their schemes. And they believe
rightly; for I have sworn upon the altar of god, eternal hostility against
every form of tyranny over the mind of man."
Thomas Jefferson's letter to Bejamin Rush, 1800.
