A Sunday Truth

James Wolcott has a Sunday Sermonette quoting Robert Ingersoll. Here is a snippet but go read the whole thing.

"To Paine, Jefferson and Franklin, we are indebted more than to all the others, for a human government, and for a Constitution in which no God is recognized superior to the legally expressed will of the people. they knew that to put God in the Constitution was to put man out. They knew that the recognition of a Deity would be seized upon by fanatics and zealots as a pretext for destroying liberty of thought."

Pardon my French but AMEN!
