Wrong again Athiests !
Many atheist will stand there and tell you that this country was not founded on Christian morals .They will even go as far to say that they were barely believers of God . Well I will mention a several founding fathers that would tell them a thing or two.
CHARLES CARROL was a signer of the Declaration of independence .He wrote in his 11/4/1800 letter to James McHenry :" "Without morals a republic cannot sussist at any length of time.They therefore who are decrying the Christian religion ,who's morality is so sublime and pure..are undermining the solid foundation of morals "
BENJAMIN FRANKLIN was a very important man in this countries history . Lets take a gander at some of his quotes :" God governs in the affair of man .And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice ,is it probable the empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured in the sacred writings that except the Lord build the house ,they later in vain that build it.I firmly believe this .I also believe that without his concurring aid,we shall succeed in this political building no better then the builders of Babel"(Constitutional convention of 1787)
"In Bens 1749 plan of education for public schools in Pennsylvania ,he insisted that schools teach "The excellency of the Christian religion above all others ancient or modern "
In 1787 when Ben helped found Ben Franklin University it was dedicated as "A nursery of religion and learning ,built on Christ ,The Cornerstone . "
THOMAS JEFFERSON may have rejected certain teachings of Christianity such as the miracles of Jesus however he never claimed to be an atheist .However he did claim to be a Christian:"I am a real Christian that is to say a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus " (Letter to Benjamin Rush 4/23/1803) He wrote his own bible . However as i stated before rejected some of the teachings of Christianity . Still he quotes himself being a Christian and not an atheist .This country was never founded on atheism .
GEORGE WASHINGTON added the words "So help me God " to the oath of office . Lets check out his words : " It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible ."
"What students would learn in American schools above all is the religion of Jesus Christ "(quotes from a speech he gave to the Delaware Indians 5/12/1779)
JOHN ADAMS and JOHN HANDCOCK "We recognize no sovereign but God,and no king but Jesus"(4-18-1775)
JOHN ADAMS "The general principles upon which the fathers
achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity..... " (Written to Abagail on the day the Declaration was approved by congress)
SAMUEL ADAMS "He who made all men hath made the truths necessary to human happiness obvious to all our forefathers opened the Bible to all ". (American Independence ,8/1/1776 speech delivered at the state house in Philadelphia )
JOHN QUINCY ADAMS "The law given from Sinai (10 commandments) was a civil and municipal as well as a moral and religious code" (Letters to his son page 61)
So atheists are wrong on this matter and next time an atheist tells you that this country was not founded on Christian morals ,feel free to use the quotes here .
To all atheists reading this i would just like to say "Your wrong again atheists "
