John Witherspoon on Religion and Civil Liberty

John Witherspoon was a signer of the Declaration of Indepence and president of Princeton College.

Witherspoon said,

"He is the best friend of American liberty who is most sincere and active in promoting true and undefiled religion and who sets Himself with the greatest firmness to bear down profanity and immorality of every kind...God grant that in America true religion and civil liberty may be inseparable and that the unjust attempts to destroy the one, may in the issue tend to the support and establishment of both."
