"While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of
religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian."
--The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343.
"Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts
there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his
fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be."
--Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, Vol. III, p. 9.
"The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and
now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God."
--Adams wrote this on June 28, 1813, in a letter to Thomas Jefferson.
"Cursed be all that learning that is contrary to the cross of Christ."
--America's Providential History, p. 93.
"I have carefully examined the evidences of the Christian religion, and if I was sitting as a juror upon its authenticity I would unhesitatingly give
my verdict in its favor. I can prove its truth as clearly as any proposition ever submitted to the mind of man."
--Famous American Statesmen, p. 126.
"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but
on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here."
--The Trumpet Voice of Freedom: Patrick Henry of Virginia, p. iii.
Now these are just a few quotes to defend that the Founding Fathers weren't opposed to Christianity. Also, I would like to ask you to not attack a
man for using a website that was biased to his point of view for I have seen others also using websites biased to their views to support their own
claims. Be kind and considerate.
I don't mean to support the claim that the United States was founded upon Christianity but that they weren't
opposed to it as some others may claim. They were influenced by it but didn't directly found the country upon so that one wouldn't be inclined to a
particular position and have a loss of choice or freedom.
Please respect each others' points of view. May God bless you.
