Unbeknownst to the vast majority of Americans today, our Founding Fathers understood our country’s need for a sure moral compass. They believed the only way any form of representative government could succeed was if the populace practiced moral self-restraint. Furthermore, they believed moral self-restraint would only be practiced by those who believed in God, the Judge of all the earth to whom all men must one day give an account. This explains why John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
