„He who made all men hath made the truths necessary to human happiness obvious to all.
Our forefathers threw off the yoke of Popery in religion; for you is reserved the honor of leveling the popery of politics. They opened the Bible to all, and maintained the capacity of every man to judge for himself in religion.“
— Samuel Adams American statesman, Massachusetts governor, and political philosopher 1722 - 1803
Speech in Philadelphia (1776)
