Excellent Presentation How Religious Liberty Shaped America

By Consumer

from Central Coast CA

Comments about PBS First Freedom: The Fight for Religious Liberty DVD:

This excellent tape with great production values examines how the quest for religious freedom shaped our Revolution and our Constitution. Too often taken as a given, the idea of separation of Church and State was actually ... well, revolutionary. Freedom to worship without State interference or dictate drove a lot of the Revolution. And while it wasn't part of the body of our Constitution, that was out of necessity for not getting bogged down on what a reference to religion might do the ultimate passage of the Constitution at a time when time was becoming of the essence.
The actors and script are engaging and well done.

Important Things. . .

Comments about PBS First Freedom: The Fight for Religious Liberty DVD:

It was two centuries ago when this momentous debate of American Principles took place. This is a wonderful DVD, timely, and every high school student should have a seminar about it, as a condition of graduation.

How enlightening!

Comments about PBS First Freedom: The Fight for Religious Liberty DVD:

I join other reviewers to give this movie 5 stars. Very enlightening. Deeply touching to see how the founding fathers, though very mindful of God and who were Christians, yet firmly kept religion out of the running of the government. Though I wonder, if Jefferson had lost the election to Adams, would things have been different! That was a close call. Anyhow I have ordered the book rather than the DVD as I want to leisurely get more details. I want the information to counter those who claim that the USA is a "Christian nation."

Filled with facts and feeling. I just ordered a copy for myself and each of my children. So important for all of us to understand the difference between liberty and tolerance.

The battle continues

Comments about PBS First Freedom: The Fight for Religious Liberty DVD:

I can remember being asked to say a prayer for a high school meeting. I said no and the teacher said you are going to say it. Then my friend said he would say the prayer. The teacher backed away because his prayer would be different because he was from a different faith. The only way this works is for religion and government to not mix. It is what made the United States the most religious country on the earth. You carry your religious convictions into the public square but they have to be yours and you should not impose them on others.
