“Religion” in the Schools

 

“The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue and without virtue there can be no liberty and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments…..Without religion I believe that learning does real mischief to the morals and principles of mankind.” Dr. Benjamin Rush, father of American schools, father of American medicine, leading abolitionist, help create the AME church, righteous Orthodox Evangelical Christian, Signer of the Declaration of Independence
