Religious Freedom Day

I just discovered that there is such a thing as Religious Freedom Day here in the US.

From ReligiousFreedomDay.com


Religious Freedom Day

Each year, the President declares January 16th to be Religious Freedom Day, and calls upon Americans to "observe this day through appropriate events and activities in homes, schools, and places of worship." The day is the anniversary of the passage, in 1786, of the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom.

The goal of ReligiousFreedomDay.com is to promote and protect students' religious expression rights by informing educators, parents, and students about these liberties.

One should really read the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom if they're unfamiliar with it. I agree wholeheartedly with it and I pray our country continues to uphold and understand its worth.

thanks for the post Bugs, very good place to get started in on a hypertext adventure :)

I particularly liked cpomparing the closing paragraphs, the proclamations, of Dubya and Willie, can you spot the difference?
