“America’s past is a bright and shining light. America was, and is, the city on the hill, the fountain of hope, the beacon of liberty.   “… every colonial settler and every western pioneer understood (that) character was tied to liberty and liberty to property. And the surest way to ensure the presence of good character was to keep God at the center of one’s life, community and ultimately, nation. ‘Separation of church and state’ meant freedom to worship, not freedom from worship. ‘Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty’ (2 Corinthians 3:17).'”
