• “In the United States the sovereign authority is religious … There is no country in the whole world where the Christian religion retains a greater influence than in America . . . America is still the place where the Christian religion has kept the greatest real power over men’s souls; and nothing better demonstrates how useful and natural it is to man, since the country where it now has the widest sway is both the most enlightened and the freest.” ~Alexis de Tocqueville, (from a two-part work, “Democracy in America,” 1835; 1840)
