The First Amendment is part of the U.S. Constitution.
In Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptist Association, Jan. 1, 1802, he states the purpose of the First Amendment as: “Thus building a wall of separation between church and state.”
In a related quote, James Madison said, “Every new and successful example therefore of a perfect separation between ecclesiastical and civil matters is of importance.”
