Quote of the Week; G.Morris, author of 1st draft of the Constitution

“Liberty and justice simply cannot be had apart from the gracious influences of a righteous people. A righteous people simply cannot exist apart from the aspiration to liberty and justice. The Christian religion and its incumbent morality is tied to the cause of freedom with a Gordian knot; loose one from the other and both are sent asunder.”

Gouverneur Morris, from biography by James Carter Braxton, 1911, p. 101
