As part of a series entitled Words from Our Presidents, every Tuesday we are bringing you different from quotes from U.S. Presidents on religion, religious liberty, and individual freedom. Today we have a quote from President Gerald Ford’s address at the National Religious Broadcasters’ 32nd Annual Congressional Breakfast.

“But the separation of church and state, although a fundamental principle to which I fully subscribe, was never intended in my view to separate public morality from public policy”

President Gerald Ford
January 28, 1975
