Bunyan for Constitution was written in 1787, however, only two states”New York and Virginia”did not have religious qualifications for public office. Most of the other states required that one be a Protestant to hold office. The separation of church and state is itself a historical, political achievement. Without politics, the safeguarding of private realms of life from politics would be impossible. Economic freedom is also an important right in modern societies. It allows us to hold private property and to engage in financial enterprises of our own choosing. Like religious freedom, economic freedom is a crucial aspect of individual freedom and autonomy.
