To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoys. . .Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government – and all the blessings which flow from them – must fall with them. – Jedidiah Morse (1761-1826), geographer, author, and father of Samuel F. B. Morse
