Quote of the day: on the Bible and Republicanism

"The Bible contains the most profound Philosophy, the most perfect Morality, and the most refined Policy, that ever was conceived upon earth.  It is the most Republican Book in the World, and therefore I will still revere it."

- John Adams (1735-1826), Letter to Benjamin Rush, February 2, 1807, quoted in The Founders on Religion:  A Book of Quotations, James H. Hutson, editor (Princeton University Press:  2005), pg. 23.

More people need to read this quote to understand not just what our government was founded on, but also why the Bible is more than just a book of "myths".
