22 B.U. L. Rev. 261 (1942)


This article discusses the relationship of law and religion in American culture. It constructs a theory of "American Faith", a theory that underlies all of American jurisprudence. This theory includes the propositions that there is a God, that all men are equal in God's sight even if not in front of mortal men, and that the American Revolution was a "revolution of believers." It concludes that religious liberty is our one and only true freedom and by holding onto it we can support human rights and freedom.
