U. S. SENATOR; SECRETARY OF STATE; DEFENDER OF THE CONSTITUTION
"[T]he Christian religion “ its general principles “ must ever be regarded among us as the foundation of civil society."
"Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens."
"[T]o the free and universal reading of the Bible men [are] much indebted for right views of civil liberty."
"The Bible is a book which teaches man his own individual responsibility, his own dignity, and his equality with his fellow man."
