Patrick Henry on the Bible

Those who signed the Declaration of Independence knew that if the Revolution did not succeed, they would die as traitors. On another occasion, Patrick Henry reportedly held up his Bible and said,

This book is worth all the other books which have ever been printed, and it has been my misfortune that I have never found time to read it with the proper attention and feeling till lately. I trust in the mercy of heaven that it is not yet too late.

Samuel Adams on the Bible

Samuel Adams is known as the "The Father of the American Revolution." As a devoted patriot, his commitment to freedom spread contagiously during the dawn of the rebellion against British rule. In a report to the Boston Town Meeting, November 20, 1772, Adams said:

…every man living in or out of a state of civil society has a right peaceably and quietly to worship God according to the dictates of his conscience…Just and true liberty, equal and impartial liberty, … The Rights of the Colonists… These may be best understood by reading and carefully studying the institutes of the great Law Giver and Head of the Christian Church, which are to be found clearly written and promulgated in the New Testament

President Calvin Coolidge on the Bible

“The foundations of our society and government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country."—President Calvin Coolidge, 1923.

If American democracy is to remain the greatest hope of humanity, it must continue abundantly in the faith of the Bible.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

... Ames had a growing concern about a trend he saw in American education. On September 20, 1789, in an article published in Palladium
magazine, he wrote:

We have a dangerous trend beginning to take place in our education. We’re starting to put more and more textbooks into our schools… We are spending less time in the classroom in the Bible, which should be the principle text in our schools…. The Bible states these great moral lessons better than any other manmade book.
