One Nation Under God

"It is extremely important to our nation,
in a political as well as religious view,
that all possible authority and influence
should be given to the Scriptures,
for these furnish the best principles of civil liberty,
and the most effectual support of republican government*.

The principles of all genuine liberty,
and of wise laws, and administrations are to be
drawn from the Bible and sustained by its authority.
The man therefore who weakens or destroys
the divine authority of that book
may be accessory to all the public disorders
which society is doomed to suffer...."

~Noah Webster

* Republic vrs. Democracy
