Religious Affiliation: Episcopalian

"The lessons of religious toleration -- a toleration which recognizes complete liberty of human thought, liberty of conscience -- is one which, by precept and example, must be inculcated in the hearts and minds of all Americans if the institutions of our democracy are to be maintained and perpetuated.

"We must recognize the fundamental rights of man. There can be no true national life in our democracy unless we give unqualified recognition to freedom of religious worship and freedom of education." -- letter to the Calvert Associates, 1937

"The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way -- everywhere in the world." --The "Four Freedoms" speech, 6 January 1941
