KENTUCKY separated from Virginia and became the 15th State in the Union on June 1, 1792.
Later that same year, June 27, 1792, Kentucky ratified the Bill of Rights.
At that time, Kentucky was operating under its 1792 Constitution, which stated:
"Article 8, Section 5: The manner of administering an oath or affirmation shall be such as is consistent with the conscience of the deponent, and shall be esteemed by the legislature the most solemn appeal to God."
"Article 11, Section 3: That all men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences ... No human authority can, in any case whatever, control or interfere with the rights of conscience ...
Section 4: That the civil rights ... of any citizen shall in no wise be diminished ... on account of his religion."
Section 7: That ... the free communication of thoughts and opinions is one of the invaluable rights of man, and every citizen may freely speak, write, and print on any subject."
