It’s a good example of why I don’t trust libertarians. They pander to leftist prejudices. They know what they’re doing and want to stick it to Christian conservatives.
They turn a blind eye to the government legalizing abortion and then act like its nobodies business once it’s legal.
Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime & pure, [and] which denounces against the wicked eternal misery, and [which] insured to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.
Charles Carrollton, signatory of Declaration of Independence
Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion.
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
