How much trouble is America in? Should the government provide food for every one? Surveys reveal that 68% say yes. Healthcare? 66% say it should be provided by the state. 52% say housing should be provided by the state 51% say that the government should provide jobs for everyone that wants one. This is called socialism. Do people really know what they are asking for?
Benjamin Franklin Morris' book has been out of print for more than 100 years. If you can find an original copy, it's only because you have looked in the deep recesses of university libraries where the volume is probably collecting dust on dimly lit library shelves. Organizations like the ACLU and Americans United for Separation of Church and State have done their best to ignore the content of the massive compilation of original source material found in this book. If Americans ever become aware of the content assembled by the author, the arguments for a secular founding of America will turn to dust.
