Invoke a forefather




In regard to Emily Thurston’s June 25 commentary on removing God from the Pledge of Allegiance, I will simply borrow a great patriot’s words:

  “It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.
   “A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom.
    “No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.”
                                                                          —Patrick Henry
