BILL OF RIGHTS

Profile America — Sunday, December 15th.  It was on this date in 1791 that Virginia ratified the first 10 amendments to the Constitution, making them law. Known as the Bill of Rights, we usually take them pretty much for granted, yet still find plenty of ground for philosophical contention over their real world, 21st century meaning. Among other things, these amendments guarantee freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, the rights to peaceably assemble and fair trials, freedom of the press, and free exercise of religion. Every day Americans exercise these rights, many by attending the religious services of their choice. About 228 million Americans identify themselves with an established religion. Three-quarters say they are Christian. Another 2.6 million are Jewish, and 1.3 million others are Muslim. You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at www.census.gov.
