Freedom of religion--Support of religion prohibited.
The right to worship God
according to the dictates of conscience shall never be infringed. No person shall be denied any
civil or political right, privilege or position on account of his religious opinions; but the liberty of
conscience hereby secured shall not be so construed as to excuse licentiousness, the invasion of
the rights of others, or justify practices inconsistent with the peace or safety of the state.
No person shall be compelled to attend or support any ministry or place of worship against his
consent nor shall any preference be given by law to any religious establishment or mode of worship.
No money or property of the state shall be given or appropriated for the benefit of any sectarian or
religious society or institution.
