Quote of the day: morality at the center of faith

"No point of Faith is so plain, as that Morality is our Duty; for all Sides agree to that.  A virtuous Heretick shall be saved before a wicked Christian."

- Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), Dialogue between Two Presbyterians, April. 10, 1735, quoted in The Founders on Religion:  A Book of Quotations, ed. by James H. Hutson (Princeton:  2005), pg. 147.
