volstate, i have a great idea how you could use gigabit internet speeds. you could piggy-back off of someone else's previously installed infrastructure to sell slower speed internet access at a higher cost under your own ISP company. sounds like a great idea, huh?
well, that's even funnier that a whole group of unthinkers have misused the quote. read the quote. i know you don't like to do that, but you'll need to. want me to break it down for you? maybe you're not a native english speaker.
here's the original:
"Let us with caution indulge the supposition, that morality can be maintained without religion."
now in an easier format for wildman to understand (and his group of unthinking friends)
"Only a reckless fool would think that morality can be maintained without religion."
here's the quote in its full context as delivered by George Washington in his farewell address:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule, indeed, extends with more or less force to every species of free government. Who that is a sincere friend to it can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric?"
i'm cracking up about wildman's quote by george washington: "Let us with caution indulge the supposition, that morality can be maintained without religion."
he thinks that washington was saying morality without religion is possible. washington was saying the exact opposite, but wildman is too "up in arms" over football prayers to see that.
it's hilarious when liberals throw out quotes that don't support their position
just as basic grammatical and syntactical mistakes are the result of a lack of education, right, SeaSmokie?
this is one of the most racist cartoons i've ever seen. i can't believe you portray Ms. Sherrod as a white chicken. you may as well have put a piece of watermelon in her mouth. you should be ashamed.
thanks for the story. it's always encouraging to hear of individuals who are willing to make tough decisions contrary to cultural dogma. chris, thanks for your courage! God Bless!
