"The First Amendment was written to protect religious values from government tyranny."

American Minute with Bill Federer

On MARCH 15, 1984, the Senate voted down voluntary prayer in public
schools. President Reagan said:

"I am deeply disappointed that, although a majority of the Senate
voted for it, the school prayer amendment fell short."

On September 25, 1982, Ronald Reagan said:

"Unfortunately, in the last two decades we've experienced an
onslaught of such twisted logic that if Alice were visiting America,
she might think she'd never left Wonderland.

We're told that it somehow violates the rights of others to permit
students in school who desire to pray to do so. Clearly this infringes
on the freedom of those who choose to pray, the freedom taken for
granted since the time of our Founding Fathers."

Reagan continued:

"To prevent those who believe in God from expressing their faith is
an outrage...The relentless drive to eliminate God from our
schools...should be stopped."

Ronald Reagan said on February 25, 1984:

"Sometimes I can't help but feel the First Amendment is being turned
on its head."

Reagan told the Alabama Legislature, March 15, 1982:

"The First Amendment was not written to protect the people of this
country from religious values; it was written to protect religious
values from government tyranny."
