George Washington’s Farewell Address
Do not let anyone claim the tribute of American patriotism if they ever attempt to remove religion from politics.
George Washington from his Farewell Address to the Nation:
Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in the sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian.
Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, 1892.
