Quote of the Day

“If your cause is just, you may look in confidence to the Lord and entreat him to plead it has his own…… I willingly embrace the opportunity of declaring my opinion without any hesitation that the cause in which America is now in arms is the cause of justice, of liberty, and of human nature….. The knowledge of God and his truths have from the beginning of the world been chiefly, if not entirely, confined to those parts of the earth where to some degree of liberty and political justice were to be seen; and great were the difficulties with which they have to struggle from the imperfections of human society and the unjust decisions of usurped authority.  There is not a single instance in history in which civil liberty was lost, and religious liberty preserved entire.”
