    • Perhaps you missed this quote from America’s second president: “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. … Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” –John Adams

      • Of course I did, because this is a misquote. It is not the full text. You most assuredly got this from one of your lying-ass religious pages.

        Lying, because it cuts out a very important thing, namely, that “moral” and “religious” are two separate things, not a single thing. Either will suffice for Adams. And most damning, he specifically says that the constitution doesn’t have a moral or religious basis! That’s why he feels we need moral or religious people.

        Let’s also note that Adams never once, in that entire sentence, says “Christian”. That’s also quite important.

        And yes, some of the founding fathers were religious, if we really want to know what they felt like, as a whole, a good clue would be, say, something they voted on, and unanimously agreed, that a religious perspective was not in the founding. If only we had such a thing……

        Oh, yes, here it is: As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; (Treaty of Tripoli, Article 11)

        So do we believe a hatchet job done to Adam’s letter, cutting out the very thing he said that you say he didn’t, or do we believe a treaty unanimously voted on by every single Senator, including many founding fathers?
