"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time;
they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion,
whose morality is so sublime and pure
(and) which insures to the good eternal happiness,
are undermining the solid foundation of morals,
the best security for the duration of free governments."
by:
Charles Carroll
Maryland member of the Continental Congress, the only Roman Catholic to sign the Declaration of Independence, US Senator for Maryland (1789-1792)

Reader comments about this quote:
Maybe if you weren't a Christian or Catholic, (like he was), you would be really offended. But, I agree with his saying on morality. Morality holds a country together, not money. I wish that more people would be aware of this.
