The Founding Fathers on
Religious Liberty
“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.” – Patrick Henry
“To obtain religious as well as civil
liberty, I entered zealously into the
Revolution.… God grant that this
religious liberty may be preserved in
these States, to the end of time, and that
all who believe in the religion of Christ
may practice the leading principle of
charity, the basis of every virtue.” -

    from http://8kidsandabusiness.wordpress.com Rebecca, I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award because you give me hope that there is a politician out there who isn’t afraid to stand up and speak the Truth. Good on you!

    From my place in Canada I applaud the rally. As bad as things are in the USA, religious freedom in Canada has rapidly come under threat. First prayer, then religion and in many schools moral teaching has vanished. I know an army padre who was told not to mention Jesus in his prayer at a public meeting! Only 20% of Canadians go to church, though about 70% believe in Jesus (so the churches have become irrelevant). May the rally be one more ingredient in a revival of God’s people and our respect for people of faith…

    Thank you! God is in every cell of our body. He created each one of us for a Fantastic Purpose – to lift and inspire the world – BUT, never to harm our bodies. We must stand up and sing out against any harm – to anyone of us. Thank you! Thank you for your efforts.

    I lead worship during and intercession set at Well House of Prayer. We pray for justice topics during my set, abortion being one of them. Although we start at 7, our prayers will be with yours as one voice of intercession to God. Good things to come from a God who Loves justice.
