The Theocracy R Us crowd continued their posturing claims of high moral ground with that ol' time religious zeal this past weekend in Nashville. Let me just offer up a few of those pesky comments from History that shows the difference between leadership and chest-thumping.
"It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have no virtues."
"The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion."
George Washington at the signing of the Treaty of Tripoli, 1796
"If we have learned anything in the past quarter century, it is that we cannot federalize virtue."
President George Bush, 1991
"For why should my freedom be judged by another man's conscience?"
Paul, First Corinthians 10:29
