    In public schools, kids should be taught about all religions, because you can't separate religion from anything historically, and be accurate.
    In government, religion should not exist; using as a guide those religious ideals and tenets that have been historically accepted as the dichotomy of "right and wrong" is OK, even necessary IMO; but constantly interjecting God and Satan into political discourse is just not productive. IMO
    Have you EVER read anything from the FOUNDING FATHERS?

    Many quotes from them all about God/satan/this country and the original laws/Constitution/Ammendments worked just fine. Its been the LIBERAL insertion in the last 50 or so years that has messed this country up and will continue to do so.

    I'm afraid that this country is doomed if we do not see a great revival throughout the land.

    As often, and maybe more than you have - maybe not. Where was the Islam back then? Buddhism? Judaism? "Freedom of religion" means just that, and it also means you have no right to force yours on anyone else.

    There are a lot of good revivals on Broadway. Toss in some touring companies and you're good to go. Speaking of which, I got tickets for Wicked this weekend for the wife and daughter.
    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.

    Most of the quotes I have seen were about preventing religion from dominating politics.

    Now let's talk.......
    I do think one reference in a quote by Adams about "carloads" is inaccurate, but I think most of it is correct.

    George Washington
    1st U.S. President
    "While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian."
    --The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343.

    John Adams
    2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence
    "Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be."
    --Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, Vol. III, p. 9.

    "The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God."
    --Adams wrote this on June 28, 1813, in a letter to Thomas Jefferson.

    "The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever."
    --Adams wrote this in a letter to his wife, Abigail, on July 3, 1776.

    Thomas Jefferson
    3rd U.S. President, Drafter and Signer of the Declaration of Independence
    "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever; That a revolution of the wheel of fortune, a change of situation, is among possible events; that it may become probable by Supernatural influence! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in that event."
    --Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVIII, p. 237.

    "I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ."
    --The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, p. 385.

    John Hancock
    1st Signer of the Declaration of Independence
    "Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. ... Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us."
    --History of the United States of America, Vol. II, p. 229.

    Benjamin Franklin
    Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Unites States Constitution
    "Here is my Creed. I believe in one God, the Creator of the Universe. That He governs it by His Providence. That He ought to be worshipped.
    That the most acceptable service we render to him is in doing good to his other children. That the soul of man is immortal, and will be treated with justice in another life respecting its conduct in this. These I take to be the fundamental points in all sound religion, and I regard them as you do in whatever sect I meet with them.
    As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the system of morals and his religion, as he left them to us, is the best the world ever saw, or is likely to see; But I apprehend it has received various corrupting changes, and I have, with most of the present dissenters in England, some doubts as to his divinity; though it is a question I do not dogmatize upon, having never studied it, and think it needless to busy myself with it now, when I expect soon an opportunity of knowing the truth with less trouble. I see no harm, however, in its being believed, if that belief has the good consequence, as probably it has, of making his doctrines more respected and more observed; especially as I do not perceive, that the Supreme takes it amiss, by distinguishing the unbelievers in his government of the world with any peculiar marks of his displeasure."
