The purpose of Our Conscience weblog is to facilitate a greater discussion and understanding of church and state separation in our community and in others. Underlying this is the value that each individual should be allowed to follow the dictates of his or her own conscience without influence, coercion, or direction from the State when it comes to matters of religion.

In the hands of the people

There is a nativity scene hanging from my Christmas tree in my living room. I don't need to obtain the blessing of the State and hang it on public land. This is precisely where our Constitution wants religion, in the hands of the people, not the State. Nothing is more vital to religious liberty than that.
