First Amendment Freedoms

The Newseum in Washington D.C. is a privately funded museum, focused on the freedoms of speech, the press, assembly and religious expression, as guaranteed to us in the First Amendment to our U.S. Constitution.

Our Constitution’s main articles are the details needed to establish a federal government, uniting our original 13 sovereign states. But, after this “governing handbook” was accepted by the states, the Congress proposed and the states ratified 10 amendments, known as the Bill of Rights, to restrict the role of this new federal government and insure personal liberties.

As in our Declaration of Independence, these rights were correctly perceived by the people to come from our Creator and not granted by government. Therefore, our liberty comes from our Creator as well.

These First Amendment freedoms are what some are calling “core convictions” from our founding documents. Are they yours, as well?
