“The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all of our civil constitutions and laws. All the miseries and evils which men suffer from, vice,crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war proceed from their despising of neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.”

I think he hit the nail on the head…

What say you?
