Dr. Benjamin Rush

“That the Bible when not read in schools is seldom read in any subsequent period of life….It should be read in our schools in preference to all other books from it’s containing the greatest portion of that kind of knowledge which is calculated to produce private and temporal happiness…..By withholding the knowledge of this doctrine from children, we deprive ourselves of the best means of awakening moral sensibility in their minds.”

Dr. Benjamin Rush’s famous “A Defence of the Use of the Bible As a School Book”, Father of American education, Father of American medicine, leading abolitionist, started three colleges, helped create the AME Church, righteous Orthodox Christian and Signer of the Declaration of Independence
