For accounts of background and evolution of the Virginia Bill for Religious Liberty see e.g. No. And the principle was as much to prevent 'the interference of law in religion' as to restrain religious intervention in political matters.31 In this field the authors of our freedom would not tolerate 'the first experiment on our liberties' or 'wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise, and entangled the question in precedents.' VI; Knight, Education in the United States (1941) ch. The division is typical. In no phase was he more unrelentingly absolute than in opposing state support or aid by taxation. 15, 330 U.S. 1app|>Appendix hereto. To avoid any such possibility, Madison suggested inserting the word "national" before "religion," thereby not only again disclaiming intent to bring about the result Huntington feared, but also showing unmistakably that "establishment" meant public "support" of religion in the financial sense. 330 U.S. 1fn2/49|>Note 49 infra. . By 1791 the great fight over establishments had ended, although some vestiges remained then and later, even in Virginia. [Footnote 14]", This Court has previously recognized that the provisions of the First Amendment, in the drafting and adoption of which Madison and Jefferson played such leading roles, had the same objective, and were intended to provide the same protection against governmental intrusion on religious liberty as the Virginia statute. Instead of holding forth an asylum to the persecuted, it is itself a signal. Par. This he declared in a private letter, IX Madison, 484, 487, written after the First Amendment was adopted: "The tendency to a usurpation on one side or the other, or to a corrupting coalition or alliance between them, will be best guarded agst. 121, 44 L.Ed. are indeed requested to signify their opinion respecting the adoption of the Bill to the next Session of Assembly."

In the words of Jefferson, the clause against establishment of religion by law was intended to erect "a wall of separation between church and State." Madison was coauthor with George Mason of the religious clause in Virginia's great Declaration of Rights of 1776. Who does not see that * * * the same authority which can force a citizen to contribute three pence only of his property for the support of any one establishment, may force him to conform to any other establishment in all cases whatsoever?' Papers of George Washington, Vol. 392. It would seem at least a doubtfully sufficient basis for reasonable classification that some children should be excluded simply because the only school feasible for them to attend, in view of geographic or other situation, might be one conducted in whole or in part for profit. [Footnote 13] The preamble to that Bill stated, among other things, that, "Almighty God hath created the mind free; that all attempts to influence it by temporal punishments or burthens, or by civil incapacitations, tend only to beget habits of hypocrisy and meanness, and are, a departure from the plan of the Holy author of our religion, who being Lord both of body and mind, yet chose not to propagate it by coercions on either . the like restrictions and limitations as are or may be prescribed by the laws for raising the Revenues of this State. At once he resumed the fight, continuing it before succeeding legislative sessions. But during all this time the fight for religious freedom moved forward in Virginia on various fronts with growing intensity. This is alleged to be a use of State power to support church schools contrary to the prohibition of the First Amendment which the Fourteenth Amendment made applicable to the states. . XII, XV; James, cc. This, it is alleged violates the due process clause of the F urteenth Amendment. And obviously, as the majority say, it is much too late to urge that legislation designed to facilitate the opportunities of children to secure a secular education serves no public purpose. We remonstruate against the said Bill. Remonstrance, Appendix, Par.

It degrades from the equal rank of Citizens all those whose opinions in Religion do not bend to those of the Legislative authority. worship in the churches and preaching from the pulpits." 'Madison looked upon * * * religious freedom, to judge from the concentrated attention he gave it, as the fundamental freedom.' 1213, 128 A.L.R. If Religion be not within (the) cognizance of Civil Government, how can its legal establishment be said to be becessary to Civil Government? The only thing needed will be for the Court again to transplant the "public welfare/public function" view from its proper nonreligious due process bearing to First Amendment application, holding that religious education is not "supported," though it may be aided, by the appropriation, and that the cause of education generally is furthered by helping the pupil to secure that type of training. These works and Randall, see note 1, will be cited in this opinion by the names of their authors. The Ewing board pays only for transportation to these schools, not for tuitions. [Footnote 1] The appellee, a township board of education, acting pursuant to this statute, authorized reimbursement to parents of money expended by them for the bus transportation of their children on regular busses operated by the public transportation system. Were he to accept the common school, he would be the first to protest the teaching there of any creed or faith not his own. 1691, 141 A.L.R. to its incorporation with Civil policy. See I Jefferson, 70-71; XII Jefferson, 447; Padover, 80. 1148. But we know that such schools are parochial only in name -- they, in fact, represent a worldwide and age-old policy of the Roman Catholic Church. The funds used here were raised by taxation. Nor is this reason why the state should pay the expense of transportation or other items of the cost of religious education. Remonstrance, Par.

No tax in any amount, large or small, can be levied to support any religious activities or institutions, whatever they may be called, or whatever from they may adopt to teach or practice religion. (1946) 534, 551, 555. He epitomized the whole of that tradition in the Amendment's compact, but nonetheless comprehensive, phrasing. [Footnote 2/28] Denial or abridgment of religious freedom was a violation of rights both of conscience and of natural equality. . Legislatures are free to make. 764, 795 et seq.

Maryland permitted taxation for support of the Christian religion and limited civil office to Christians until 1818, Id., I, 819, 820, 832. [Footnote 3/3] Whilst we assert for ourselves a freedom to embrace, to profess, and to observe the Religion which we believe to be of divine origin, we cannot deny an equal freedom to those whose minds have not yet yielded to the evidence which has convinced us. Insofar as the second phase of the due process argument may differ from the first, it is by suggesting that taxation for transportation of children to church schools constitutes support of a religion by the State. 12 Hening, Statutes of Virginia (1823) 84; Commager, Documents of American History (1944) 125. 81; Prince v. Massachusetts, 321 U.S. 158, 64 S.Ct. Pierce v. Society of Sisters, 268 U. S. 510. Within a little more than three years from his legislative victory at home, he had proposed and secured the submission and ratification of the First Amendment as the first article of our Bill of Rights. [Footnote 2/16] Enactment failed in successive legislatures from its introduction in June, 1779, until its adoption in January, 1786. Either then, we must say, that the will of the Legislature is the only measure of their authority; and that in the plentitude of this authority, they may sweep away all our fundamental rights; or, that they are bound to leave this particular right untouched and sacred: Either we must say, that they may controul the freedom of the press, may abolish the trial by jury, may swallow up the Executive and Judiciary Powers of the State; nay that they may despoil us of our very right of suffrage, and erect themselves into an independent and hereditary assembly: or we must say, that they have no authority to enact into law the Bill under consideration. However, he linked this with disestablishment as collorary prime parts in a system of basic freedoms. The only line that can be so drawn is one between more dollars and less. 98, 39 A.2d 75, has held the Ewing board's action not in contravention of the state constitution or statutes or of the Federal Constitution. Then too there would seem to be no bar to making appropriations for transportation and other expenses of children attending public or other secular schools, after hours in separate places and classes for their exclusively religious instruction. The same possibility exists where the state requires a local transit company to provide reduced fares to school children including those attending parochial schools,24 or where a municipally owned transportation system undertakes to carry all school children free of charge. An innocent man is condemned to a life sentence. In this case, briefs amici curiae have been filed on behalf of various organizations representing three religious sects, one labor union, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the states of Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan and New York. Are the Quakers and Menonists the only sects who think a compulsive support of their religions unnecessary and unwarrantable? These things are beside the real question. But they cannot, through school policy any more than through other means, invade rights secured to citizens by the Constitution of the United States. No more unjust or discriminatory in fact is it to deny attendants at religious schools the cost of their transportation than it is to deny them tuitions, sustenance for their teachers, or any other educational expense which others receive at public cost. See notes 30 31 supra and text. If put to the choice, that venerable institution, I should expect, would forego its whole service for mature persons before it would give up education of the young, and it would be a wise choice. That is the effect not only in its guaranty of religion's free exercise, but also in the prohibition of establishments. The end of such strife cannot be other than to destroy the cherished liberty. '19, Madison was unyielding at all times, opposing with all his vigor the general and nondiscriminatory as he had the earlier particular and discriminatory assessments proposed. Everson v. Board of Education (1947) The controversy in Everson involved a New Jersey statute that allowed local school boards to reimburse parents for the cost of busing their children to school. 468. The First Amendment has erected a wall between church and state. Hardship in fact there is which none can blink. Here, one by numbers alone will benefit most; there, another. The protections are of a nature which does not require appropriations specially made from the public treasury and earmarked, as is New Jersey's here, particularly for religious institutions or uses. Eckenrode states: "This act, in effect, destroyed the establishment. See Judd v. Board of Education, 278 N.Y. 200, 212, 15 N.E.2d 576, 118 A.L.R. See note 7 supra. Reinman v. Little Rock, 237 U. S. 171, 237 U. S. 176; Hadacheck v. Sebastian, 239 U. S. 394, 239 U. S. 414. Now it declares, in effect, that the appropriation of public funds to defray part of the cost of attending those schools is for a public purpose. Compare the number of those who have as yet received it with the number still remaining under the dominion of false Religions; and how small is the former! Our hope is that neither of the former will, after due consideration, expouse the dangerous principle of the Bill. The assumption is that, after the individual has been instructed in worldly wisdom, he will be better fitted to choose his religion. The Remonstrance, following the Virginia statute's example, referred to the history of religious conflicts and the effects of all sorts of establishments, current and historical, to suppress religion's free exercise. The division is typical. It is undoubtedly true that children are helped to get to church schools. But not until nearly 150 years later, in the 1947 case Everson v. Board of Education , would the phrase begin to guide the Supreme Court’s understanding of the Establishment Clause. and that, therefore, to declare this act irrevocable would be of no effect in law," the Bill's concluding provision, as enacted, nevertheless asserted: "Yet we are free to declare, and do declare, that the rights hereby asserted are of the natural rights of mankind, and that, if any act shall be hereafter passed to repeal the present or to narrow its operation, such act will be an infringement of natural right.". Above all are they to be considered as retaining an 'equal title to the free exercise of Religion according to the dictates of conscience'.3 Whilst we assert for ourselves a freedom to embrace, to profess and to observe the Religion which we believe to be of divine origin, we cannot deny an equal freedom to those whose minds have not yet yielded to the evidence which has convinced us. For short accounts, see Padover, Jefferson (1942) c. V; Brant, James Madison, The Virginia Revolutionist (1941) cc. . Everson v. Board of Education 1946 I. See also Town of Pawlet v. Clark, 9 Cranch 292, 3 L.Ed. The bill directed the sheriff to pay, "all sums which . 878. The Court's holding is that this taxpayer has no grievance, because the state has decided to make the reimbursement a public purpose, and therefore we are bound to regard it as such. [Footnote 7] And all of these dissenters were compelled to pay tithes and taxes [Footnote 8] to support government-sponsored churches whose ministers preached inflammatory sermons designed to strengthen and consolidate the established faith by generating a burning hatred against dissenters. supra, note 5 108-111. . .". * * * Because the establishment in question is not necessary for the support of Civil Government. It may socialize utilities and economic enterprises and make taxpayers' business out of what conventionally had been private business. See Carmichael v. Southern Coal & Coke Co., 301 U.S. 495, 518, 57 S.Ct. But, before these school authorities draw a check to reimburse for a student's fare, they must ask just that question, and, if the school is a Catholic one, they may render aid because it is such, while if it is of any other faith or is run for profit, the help must be withheld. The only line that can be so drawn is one between more dollars and less. Although the township resolution authorized reimbursement only for parents of Public and Catholic school pupils, appellant does not allege, nor is there anything in the record which would offer the slightest support to an allegation, that there were any children in the township who attended or would have attended, but for want of transportation, any but public and Catholic schools. of persecution. See especially 1 Annals of Congress 729-731, 765; also 330 U.S. 1fn2/34|>note 34. Arch R. Everson. Rulers who wished to subvert the public liberties, may have found an established clergy convenient auxiliaries. By converse necessary implication, as well as by the absence of express denial, it must be taken to concede also that the school is helped to reach the child with its religious teaching. See Brant, c. XII. 364, 81 L.Ed. I should be surprised if any Catholic would deny that the parochial school is a vital, if not the most vital, part of the Roman Catholic Church. Mr. Justice FRANKFURTER joins in this opinion. That is the way the Act is applied to this taxpayer. Everson v. [Footnote 2/25] Nevertheless he pledged that he would work for a Bill of Rights, including a specific guaranty of religious freedom, and Virginia, with other states, ratified the Constitution on this assurance. The end of such strife cannot be other than to destroy the cherished liberty. For short accounts see Padover, Jefferson (1942) c. V; Brant, James Madison, The Virginia Revolutionist (1941) cc. No person can be punished for entertaining or professing religious beliefs or disbeliefs, for church attendance or non-attendance. Its opinion stated: "Since we hold that the legislature may appropriate general state funds or authorize the use of local funds for the transportation of pupils to any school, we conclude that such authorization of the use of local funds is likewise authorized by Pamph.L. Introduction. EVERSON v. BOARD OF EDUCATION OF EWING TP. I cannot read the history of the struggle to separate political from ecclesiastical affairs, well summarized in the opinion of MR. JUSTICE RUTLEDGE, in which I generally concur, without a conviction that the Court today is unconsciously giving the clock's hands a backward turn. If the state may aid these religious schools, it may therefore regulate them. That Amendment requires the state to be a neutral in its relations with groups of religious believers and nonbelievers; it does not require the state to be their adversary. Indeed, it would seem even more proper and necessary for the state to do this. Acknowledging that one legislature could not "restrain the acts of succeeding Assemblies . man and his God. 81; Thomas v. Collins, 323 U.S. 516, 65 S.Ct. '30 Not the amount but 'the principle of assessment was wrong.' Indeed the view is sincerely avowed by many of various faiths,40 that the basic purpose of all education is or should be religious, that the secular cannot be and should not be separated from the religious phase and emphasis. 4. Cf. Cf. If 'all men are by nature equally free and independent,'2 all men are to be considered as entering into Society on equal conditions; as relinquishing no more, and therefore retaining no less, one than another, of their natural rights. Madison, of course, was but one of many holding such views, but nevertheless agreeing to the common understanding for adoption of a Bill of Rights in order to remove all doubt engendered by the absence of explicit guaranties in the original Constitution. . The government has no jurisdiction over it. Now as always the core of the educational process is the teacher-pupil relationship. Unless this can be maintained, and the Court does not maintain it, the aid thus given is outlawed. When the proposal came up for consideration at that session, it not only died in committee, but the Assembly enacted the famous 'Virginia Bill for Religious Liberty' originally written by Thomas Jefferson.13 The preamble to that Bill stated among other things that, 'Almighty God hath created the mind free; that all attempts to influence it by temporal punishments, or burthens, or by civil incapacitations, tend only to beget habits of hypocrisy and meanness, and are a departure from the plan of the Holy author of our religion who being Lord both of body and mind, yet chose not to propagate it by coercions on either . It cannot be made a public one by legislative act. Neither do we have here a case of rate-making by which a public utility extends reduced fares to all school children, including patrons of religious schools. But the New Jersey legislature has decided that a public purpose will be served by using tax raised funds to pay the bus fares of all school children, including those who attend parochial schools. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. The only contention here is that the State statute and the resolution, in so far as they authorized reimbursement to parents of children attending parochial schools, violate the Federal Constitution in these two respects, which to some extent, overlap. The facts will not bear that construction. 11. ." Whatever might be said of some other application of New Jersey's statute, the one made here has no semblance of bearing as a safety measure or, indeed, for securing expeditious conveyance. Hence, he sought to tear out the institution not partially, but root and branch, and to bar its return forever. But it does not make the state unneutral to withhold what the Constitution forbids it to give. Neither the fireman nor the policeman has to ask before he renders aid, "is this man or building identified with the Catholic Church?" There could not be, on that basis, valid constitutional objection. 690, 52 L.Ed. Law and Contemporary Problems 14 (1949): 23–43. . Although the township resolution authorized reimbursement only for parents of public and Catholic school pupils, appellant does not allege, nor is there anything in the record which would offer the slightest support to an allegation, that there were any children in the township who attended or would have attended, but for want of transportation, any but public and Catholic schools. 1 Randall, 220. See Cobb, Rise of Religious Liberty in America (1902); Sweet, The Story of Religion in America (1939). [Footnote 2/17] As altered, the bill gave to each taxpayer the privilege of designating which church should receive his share of the tax. Within a little more than three years from his legislative victory at home he had proposed and secured the submission and ratification of the First Amendment as the first article of our Bill of Rights.27. EVERSON v. BOARD OF EDUCATION 330 U.S. 1 (1947)A New Jersey statute authorized local school boards to reimburse parents for the cost of public transportation of students to both public and private schools. Whether or not legislative compulsion upon a private utility to extend such an advantage would be valid, or its extension by a municipally owned system, we are not required to consider. Madison and his coworkers made no exceptions or abridgments to the complete separation they created. Questions of this gravity turn upon the purpose and effect of the state's expenditure to accomplish the forbidden object, not upon who receives the amount and applies it to that end or the form and manner of the payment. Our nationwide system of public education rests on the contrary view, as do all grants in aid of education, public or private, which is not religious in character. The State contributes no money to the schools. 'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. The other, to obtain public funds for the aid and support of various private religious schools. 879; 141 A.L.R. [Footnote 2/43]. 510. It brings too the struggle of sect against sect for the larger share or for any. It is of no importance in this situation whether the beneficiary of this expenditure of tax raised funds is primarily the parochial school and incidentally the pupil, or whether the aid is directly bestowed on the pupil, with indirect benefits to the school. 628 at 639. The bill provided: 'That for every sum so paid, the Sheriff or Collector shall give a receipt, expressing therein to what society of Christians the person from whom he may receive the same shall direct the money to be paid. The major causes assigned for its defeat include the elevation of Patrick Henry to the governorship in November of 1784; the blunder of the proponents in allowing the Bill for Incorporations to come to the floor and incur defeat before the Assessment Bill was acted on; Madison's astute leadership, taking advantage of every 'break' to convert his initial minority into a majority, including the deferment of action on the third, reading to the fall; the Remonstrance, bringing a flood of protesting petitions; and the general poverty of the time. This freedom was first in the Bill of Rights because it was first in the forefathers' minds; it was set forth in absolute terms, and its strength is its rigidity. Primogeniture soon followed. They have no possible materiality except to obscure the all-pervading, inescapable issue. 666: 'The structure of our government has, for the preservation of civil liberty, rescued the temporal institutions from religious interference. [Footnote 2/38] Today, as then, the furnishing of "contributions. See note 15. cit., supra, note 5, 108 111. 276; Cf. That is precisely the history of societies which have had an established religion and dissident, groups. It outlaws all use of public funds for religious purposes. Indeed, this Court has. 442, 27 L.Ed. The next year Madison became a member of the Constitutional Convention. The bishop of the diocese only has the right, in harmony with the instructions of the Holy See, to decide under what circumstances, and with what safeguards, to prevent loss of faith, it may be tolerated that Catholic children go to such schools. This was the very heart of Madison's Remonstrance, as it is of the Amendment itself. That of Maryland gave to the grantee Lord Baltimore 'the Patronages and Advowsons of all Churches which * * * shall happen to be built, together with Licence and Faculty of erecting and founding Churches, Chapels, and Places of Worship * * * and of causing the same to be dedicated and consecrated according to the Ecclesiastical Laws of our Kingdom of England, with all, and singular such, and as ample Rights, Jurisdictions, Privileges, * * * as any Bishop * * * in our Kingdom of England ever * * * hath had. In my opinion, both avenues were closed by the Constitution. See especially 1 Annals of Congress 729—731, 765; also note 34. But the Court has also pointed out that this far-reaching authority must be exercised with the most extreme caution. It is at once the refined product and the terse summation of that history. For if one class of expenditures is justified on the ground that it supports the general cause of education or benefits the individual, or can be made to do so by legislative declaration, so even more certainly would be the other. It should be kept inviolately private, not 'entangled * * * in precedents'54 or confounded with what legislatures legitimately may take over into the public domain. Leupp, 210 U.
