Jedediah Morse on Christianity and Government

Jedediah Morse is known as the "father of American geography." He authored several geography texts that were used in the early days of our country and was a contributor to Dobson's Encyclopedia. He said this about our government:

"To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom, and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoys... Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all the blessings which flow from them, must fall with them."
