[quote:3kkwvtjd][quote:3kkwvtjd]They believed that religion provided a moral foundation for government, which should govern in a manner consistent with Christianity while not tampering with religious freedom.[/quote:3kkwvtjd]
I agree with this completely. With the absence of some moral framework how is the government to determine what is right and what is wrong?
That’s why we have laws allowing abortion and the death penalty but against murder.[/quote:3kkwvtjd]
I too agree that a “moral framework” is required for a country and its people, however, what one person might consider to be “consistant with Christianity” may be considered, by another, as an attack on their freedom of religion.
