For I Do Not Believe God Means Us Thus To Divide Life Into Two Halves - To Wear A Grave Face On Sunday, And To Think It Out-of-place To Even So Much As Mention Him On A Week-day. Do You Think He Cares To See Only Kneeling Figures And To Hear Only Tones Of Prayer - And That He Does Not Also Love To See The Lambs Leaping In The Sunlight, And To Hear The Merry Voices Of The Children, As They Roll Amoung The Hay? Surely Their Innocent Laughter Is As Sweet In His Ears As The Grandest Anthem That Ever Rolled Up From The Dim Religious Light Of Some Solemn Cathedral?
~ Lewis Carroll

There Is A Schizophrenic Nature In Modern Politics. A Leader Is Expected To Have A Religious Faith But He Is Not Supposed To Let It Influence Him In His Duties. Somehow, The Truths That Determine Everything Else About His Existence Are Not Allowed To Influence How He Conducts Himself In Public Life. Not Only That, His Principles Are Usually Considered So Personal That The Public Is Not Even Allowed To Know For Certain What They Are. This Passes For Noble Statecraft In Our Time. It Was Once Thought Cowardice.
~ Stephen Mansfield
Our Constitution Was Made Only For A Moral And Religious People. It Is Wholly Inadequate To The Government Of Any Other.
~ John Quincy Adams
