MVB remarks on religious liberty, 30 October 1821

Mr. Van Buren was in favour of striking out the section, and adopting the article in the present constitution. He dissented from the gentleman from Albany, (Mr. Spencer,) that the Christian religion was a part of the law of the land; and it was not for the arguments advanced by him, that he was in favour of striking out the section.
