Happy Religious Freedom Day!!!

Each year, by Presidential Proclamation, January 16 is declared Religious Freedom Day. 

The following is as stated by President Barack Obama in his Religious Freedom Day Presidential Proclamation:

“I call on all Americans to commemorate this day with events and activities that teach us about this critical foundation of our Nation’s liberty, and show us how we can protect it for future generations here and around the world.”  

The Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom was signed January 16, 1786 and is commemorated each year on National Religious Freedom Day. Thomas Jefferson’s landmark statute became the basis for Congressman Fisher Ames’ establishment clause of the First Amendment of the U.S. Consitution.
