I. Whereas Almighty God hath created the mind free; that all attempts to influence it by temporal punishment or burthens, or by civil incapacitations, tend only to beget habits of hypocrisy and meanness, and are a departure from the plan of the Holy author of our religion, who being Lord both of body and mind, yet chose not to propagate it by coercions on either, as was his Almighty power to do . .
The irony, of course is delicious: Jefferson's 1786 Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, so often trumpeted as a triumph of secularism, roots religious liberty in natural rights endowed by the Creator, and claims as its authority none other than the "Lord" Jesus Christ, while normatively identifying Virginians themselves as Christians ["the Holy author of our religion"].
Note also that the 'holy author of our religion' is called "Almighty," which would make him divine, in other words, God, not just a mere prophet or moral philosopher. This is no "deist" formulation. Few think Jefferson believed Jesus to be divine, but Virginians as a whole clearly did--which makes all the talk of Jefferson's personal and private beliefs rather a great waste of time and ink.
So much that they took for granted we don't even see.
