Solid Foundation of Morals

Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure [and] which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.

Written by Charles Carroll, Maryland member of the Continental Congress, the only Roman Catholic to sign the Declaration of Independence and a U.S. Senator from Maryland (1789–1792), in a letter to James McHenry dated November 4, 1800.

It is unfortunate in our current democracy that many include in their definition of liberty - "freedom from religion." They believe that by supressing the Biblical foundations of this country that the citizen will be truly free from all that stifles the free expression of his liberty. They do not take into account that the free expression of the Judeo/Christian faith is all that has ever kept this country from sliding into the pit of the totalitarian gulag. Without a moral compass, civilizations crumble.
