Senate Judiciary Committee Meeting, July 1809
Considering the nomination of former President Thomas Jefferson to the Supreme Court:
Chairman: We're honored to have you to appear before us, Mr. Jeff … I mean, Mr. President. We thank you again for your outstanding service to our country, especially as president of the United States for the last eight years. We particularly honor you for originating the phrase "wall of separation between Church and State." We on this committee are concerned about giving any place to public displays of religiosity.
