"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

That's nice, but what's needed right now is strategic politics, not wonkish policy blather.  Let's stop putting the cart before the horse:  the only way any of this sees the text of a legislative bill is when republicans control congress; until then, this is just one more really stupid way to lose the next election.
