Is America defined by faith in her government? That would seem contrary to the spirit of our Revolution, and the wisdom of our first magnificent President. George Washington preferred the company of fellow citizens at a round table over a throng of supplicants kneeling before a throne. No temporal authority has the right to demand the unquestioning belief of our Republic. Faith between free men must flow both ways to be valid.

Understand this, and the nature of the American faith is revealed.
