The Capitol Was Church

 When the Capitol was the Church

 

 

What do the few in this nation who demand that crosses be removed from government property or “God” be removed from the pledge, have to say about the Founders of this nation who worshipped in the House of Representatives? During the administrations of Jefferson and Madison, the State became a church. Jefferson attended church services in the House of Representatives. Madison attended services in the Capitol. Worship services continued in the House through the Civil War. This practice was acceptable to Jefferson because the services were nondiscriminatory and voluntary. Protestant preachers of every denomination officiated, and Catholic priests began officiating sometime later. Jefferson even permitted church services in executive buildings, and the gospel could be heard in the Supreme Court chambers. By allowing church services on public property, Jefferson and Madison consciously and deliberately offered symbolic support to the Christian religion.
