Wisdom!

We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and true religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
-John Adams

I heard this a couple of weeks ago and thought of how relevant it is today.

Dang. I think you have to be smart or something to understand this quote. Too many big words. I am glad to know that I have an edumacated friend like Carrie though....

You could say, "The constitution doesn't interpret well unless you believe in God" (this is how I'd say it) but John Adams said it sooo much cooler! I wish people still talked like this!
