A patriot without religion in my estimation is as great a paradox as an honest Man without the fear of God. Is it possible that he whom no moral obligations bind, can have any real Good Will towards Men? Can he be a patriot who, by an openly vicious conduct, is undermining the very bonds of Society?… The scriptures tell us “righteousness exalteth a Nation.”

(Near the time of November 5, 1775, Abigail Adams wrote to her friend, Mercy Warren)
