No Religious Tests

Breaking both the timeline and the 4th Wall, the debate of religion and government in the United States has taken on a new and particularly partisan tone in recent days, as the Nation tries to decide what to do about the Syrian Refugee problem. Oddly enough, the debate has taken on religious tone, as some say that “as Christians” we must accept the refugees, while others say that we must not. Scripture is quoted to both support and defy the idea of bringing in the refugees.

As the debate over debate the ratification of the Constitution continued, one of the ideals bubbled to the surface – religion, and the lack thereof in the proposed Constitution, came to the front and center. But you might be surprised as to who was on which side of things, and why. And how it shows that all these centuries later, we are still debating the same questions as those who debated the Ratification of the Constitution.
