We end this week’s focus on the faith of our founding fathers with this simple quote from a supreme court justice. This was in 1931. How far we have come today, when people are doing their best to deny these words were ever spoken.
United States Supreme Court (1931), in the case of United States v. Macintosh, 283 U.S. 605, 625 (1931), Justice George Sutherland delivered the Court’s decision regarding a Canadian seeking naturalization by reiterating the Court’s decision of 1892:
We are a Christian people … [we have] the equal right of religious freedom, and acknowledge with reverence the duty of obedience to the will of God.
Justice George Sutherland, (reviewing the 1892 decision), United States v. Macintosh, 283 U.S. 605, 625 1931.
