However, the book gets at least one thing right---President Grover Cleveland did say:
"All must admit that the reception of the teachings of Christ results in the purest patriotism, in the most scrupulous fidelity to public trust, and in the best type of citizenship."
Very nice. But we need to read the rest of the quote as well:
"Those who manage the affairs of government are by this means reminded that the law of God demands that they should be courageously true to the interests of the people, and that the Ruler of the Universe will require of them a strict account of their stewardship.
The teachings of both human and Divine law thus merging into one word, duty, form the only union of Church and state that a civil and religious government can recognize."
Yes, the passionate do seem silly sometimes, and they often make naive errors, but stuff like the Cleveland quote just can't be laughed away. We should speak seriously of the serious things. Cleveland here echoes one of the key Founding Fathers, James Wilson, who wrote:
"The law of nature and the law of revelation are both Divine: they flow, though in different channels, from the same adorable source. It is indeed preposterous to separate them from each other."
Grover Cleveland makes a very nuanced point here, and one well-shared by the Founders---that where the natural law and the Bible come together is "the only union of Church and state that a civil and religious government can recognize."
In these modern days, we have forgotten about even the idea of a natural law. We prefer to make it up as we go along.
But as things get weirder and more chaotic---more entropic---natural law will be the thing that brings us back from the abyss [if at all], and only then will the Bible make any sense in our polity either, something the authors and admirers of The American Patriot's Bible need to mindful of as well.
