As our nation’s Founders designed their plan for a more perfect union, they understood that the success of a modern republic would require more than a political document like the Constitution. From their study of history, the Founders had learned of the pitfalls of republics before this one. They concluded that even the Constitution alone could not curb individual selfishness. They believed that virtues were necessary for sustaining the American experiment. Their fervent prayers were an integral part of the birth of our nation.

Article II of New Mexico’s Constitution is its Bill of Rights. Section 11 deals with Freedom of Religion. It states:

Every man shall be free to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience, and no person shall ever be molested or denied any civil or political right or privilege on account of his religious opinion or mode of religious worship. No person shall be required to attend any place of worship or support any religious sect or denomination; nor shall any preference be given by law to any religious denomination or mode of worship.

    Elbridge Thomas Gerry was born in July 1744 in Marblehead, Massachusetts. He was first educated by private tutors and entered Harvard College shortly before turning fourteen. After receiving both a B.A. and an M.A., he entered his father’s merchant business. By the 1770s the Gerrys numbered among the wealthiest Massachusetts merchants, with trading connections in Spain, the West Indies and along the North American coast.

    He was elected to the legislative assembly of the Province of Massachusetts Bay, and, along with other prominent Marbleheaders, established a hospital for performing smallpox inoculations. After the Boston Port Act, he was elected as a representative to the First Continental Congress. He also served in the Second Continental Congress and was a signer of the United States Declaration of Independence.

    John Adams wrote of them, “If every Man here was a Gerry, the Liberties of America would be safe against the Gates of Earth and Hell.”

    He was elected to the inaugural U.S. House of Representatives, serving two terms. He was the 9th Governor of the State of Massachusetts and the fifth Vice President of the United States, serving under President James Madison. While he was Governor, the legislature approved new state senate districts that led to the coining of the word “gerrymander.”

    He died in November 1814 at the age of 70 and is the only signer of the Declaration of Independence buried at the Congressional Cemetery in Washington, D.C. He was married to Ann Thompson with whom he had ten children. Gerry was Episcopalian.
