President Coolidge: Religion's Importance to Our Liberty and Rights

Some today might wish to claim our government is entirely independent of religious thoughts. But many familiar with our history know that our Founders believed religious principles and faith are key to securing our freedoms. And later leaders knew this as well. Consider the words of President Calvin Coolidge:

"Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights, of man - these... have their source and their roots in the religious convictions... We can not continue to enjoy the result if we neglect and abandon the cause."
President Calvin Coolidge, July 5, 1926, 150th Anniversary Celebration of the Declaration of Independence.

From the book:
Three Secular Reasons Why America Should Be Under God
by William J. Federer, page 30.
