GOD, GOVERNMENT, TYRANTS AND SEPARATION:

"William Penn (1644-1718) had expressed ... 'If we are not governed by God, then we will be ruled by tyrants.' This consensus was as natural as breathing in the United States at that time. We must not forget that many of those who came to America from Europe came for religious purposes. As they arrived, most of them established their own individual civil governments based upon the Bible. It is, therefore, totally foreign to the basic nature of America at the time of the writing of the Constitution to argue a separation doctrine that implies a secular state."

~ Dr. Francis Schaeffer, A Christian Manifesto
