    SECTION 4.  GUARANTY OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY. The exercise and enjoyment of
religious faith and worship shall forever be guaranteed; and no person shall
be denied any civil or political right, privilege, or capacity on account of
his religious opinions; but the liberty of conscience hereby secured shall not
be construed to dispense with oaths or affirmations, or excuse acts of
licentiousness or justify polygamous or other pernicious practices,
inconsistent with morality or the peace or safety of the state; nor to permit
any person, organization, or association to directly or indirectly aid or
abet, counsel or advise any person to commit the crime of bigamy or polygamy,
or any other crime. No person shall be required to attend or support any
ministry or place of worship, religious sect or denomination, or pay tithes
against his consent; nor shall any preference be given by law to any religious
denomination or mode of worship. Bigamy and polygamy are forever prohibited in
the state, and the legislature shall provide by law for the punishment of such
crimes.
