Founders' Daily Quote: 24 Oct 08

"That wise Men have in all Ages thought Government necessary for the Good of Mankind; and, that wise Governments have always thought Religion necessary for the well ordering and well-being of Society, and accordingly have been ever careful to encourage and protect the Ministers of it, paying them the highest publick Honours, that their Doctrines might thereby meet with the greater Respect among the common People."

--Benjamin Franklin (On that Odd Letter of the Drum, April 1730); Reference: Franklin Collected Writings, Lemay, ed., 148.

You mean there is NO separation of Church and State? Well I'll be! (duh)


May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
