The Articles of Confederation were inadequate to the growing needs of a new nation. The Constitution is surprisingly silent on many aspects of religion. Article VI and the First Amendment are the two places that deal with issues of religion. This presentation will deal with the religious arguments on both the federalist and anti-federalist camps and how our Constitution deals with issues of religious freedom and expression.
