Quote of the Day

“Human law must rest its authority ultimately upon the authority of that law which is divine. . . . Far from being rivals or enemies, religion and law are twin sisters, friends, and mutual assistants. Indeed, these two sciences run into each other.”

– James Wilson, Signer of the Constitution; U. S. Supreme Court Justice

    Good one Von. Even Marx and others recognized over the years the strength and freedom of law and order in a community has to come from a grounding in the values and principles of the Bible. Otherwise, they would not have pushed so hard to destroy faith and religion before conquering through fear and intimidation.
