Patrick Henry on “Christian” America

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”

“The Bible is worth all the other books which have ever been printed.”

  1. Oops! Larry don’t you know that America was never a Christian country (end sarcasm) Good quote!

  2. “The Bible is worth all the other books which have ever been printed.”

    Yep.Never a truer word spoken today and still true (go see the local bookstore).

    I notice that a lot of atheists in the US – right or not – use theist Thomas Jefferson and his ‘bible’ to show that Christians are simply mistaken, that the US was founded not by Bible believing Christian folk but some kind of hippy love in, where the idea of a Constitutional Republic was slipped in between a reefer or two and the Romanesque orgy. Very sad.

    Good old Patrick Henry. I shall study his works closely.

  3. AMEN!!! This will be great for my project!!!! I need more info. I am doing a Voices of the relvulation and i wanted to do it on him and well i just started and need to do more info…. Thanx

  4. I always love the George Washington Thanksgiving Day Address of 1789. That will put the the anti-in god we trust people to bed and the whole notion that this great country was founded on any religion.

    God bless!

  5. Hi. My friend and I were trying to find out who he was because for our speech meet, she has to stand “ala Patrick Henry” and he had no clue who he was.

  6. SpeechGirls, Its very sad indeed that this generation has no idea Patrick Henry was, he was a great American and great man.

    Here is a little start:
