Our Constitution: The Way It Was



From the introduction by Jon Murray

?in [erecting a ?wall of separation between church and state?] our Founding Fathers contracted a healthy disdain for religion which they voiced loudly and clearly in their writings and public pronouncements. In the ensuing two hundred plus years, Christianity, to further its own ends, has made their words so ambiguous as to encompass Christianity instead of deism and Nature.

This Booklet is intended to help dispel these myths and set the record straight. Ours is the first nation in history to realize the unique importance of the operative principle of separation of state and church. This is the founding premise of which all Americans can be proud.

About the Author

Madalyn Murray O’Hair, whom Life magazine dubbed “The Most Hated Woman in America,” is best remembered for her 1963 landmark case Murray v. Curlett, in which the US Supreme Court ruled in her favor, outlawing forced prayer and Bible reading in the public schools of America. A fighter for reason and a defender of the ‘Wall of Separation’ between state and church right up until being violently murdered with her family in 1995, even today she continues to be America’s best-known atheist.
