n 1804, Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Ursuline Sisters to reassure them that the U.S. government would not violate their religious freedom. Allaying fears they had conveyed in a letter to him, Jefferson wrote that the “principles of the constitution and government of the United States” would permit the religious order to “govern itself according to its own voluntary rules, without interference from the civil authority.”
The Ursuline Sisters had been running orphanages, hospitals, and schools in French-controlled Louisiana since 1727. They sought reassurances from Jefferson after his Louisiana Purchase that they would not suffer in America a fate similar to their confrères in France, who were then facing persecution and property loss under the secularist measures that followed the French Revolution. Jefferson, in effect, told the nuns that the American Revolution was not the same as the French Revolution, and that they would not have to live under the strictures of secularism. He guaranteed them “all the protection which my office can give” and concluded the letter, “I salute you, holy sisters, with friendship & respect.”
In his conception of “human rights” trumping religious freedom, Biden draws his inspiration not from 1776 Philadelphia but from 1789 Paris.
Could anyone imagine Joe Biden writing such a letter to nuns today?
