Holy Scriptures; penal laws

James McHenry, Signer of the Constitution and Secretary of War under Washington & Adams wrote,

“The Holy Scriptures…can alone secure to society, order and peace, and to our courts of justice and constitutions of government, purity, stability, and usefulness. In vain, without the Bible, we increase penal laws and draw entrenchments around our institutions. Bibles are strong entrenchments. Where they abound, men cannot pursue wicked courses”

I taught for eleven years in the public schools and the Bible has basically disappeared since the 1960’s. No big deal, we only spend about 90 Billion dollars to keep criminals in the jails, not to mention 14,000 murders, 10,400 people killed on our highways each year, 750,000 sexual predators, pornography rampant, only 300,000 babies murdered each year. No big deal right????
