  • “There is not a single instance in history in which civil liberty was lost, and religious liberty preserved entire. If therefore we yield up our temporal property, we at the same time deliver the conscience into bondage.” ~John Witherspoon, The Dominion of Providence Over the Passions of Men, 1776
