Im an Indian of Asian descent so pls forgive me if I am ignorant of the laws of the United States. However, I happened to read an article about Stephen F. Austin (who's name is where Austin, Texas originates) who has been stated to say
I wish the settlers to remember that the **Roman Catholic is the religion of this nation. I have taken measures to have Father Miness formerly of Nachitoches, appointed our Curate, he is a good man and acquainted with the Americans--and we must all be particular on this subject and respect the Catholic religion with all that attention due to its sacredness and to the laws of the land....
Pls note bolded part.
Is the Roman Catholic religion the religion of the State of Texas?
Thanks in advance for any clarifications.
