This came this morning from The Federalist Patriot's Founder's Quote.

"If Virtue & Knowledge are diffused among the People, they will never be enslav'd. This will be their great Security." --Samuel Adams

Virtue is gained from endurance. Some believe we can endure the hardships of our lives only by the grace of G_d. The Security Mr. Adams speaks of is a direct result of virtue, in that, it garners hope that we can continue our lives with doing, at the very least, the next best thing.
This can bring a person full circle, for first, they must have faith in a being that is difficult to fathom. With hope, their faith is increased that they will not be abandoned to the random chaos that seems to prevail in this world.
I prefer this to trying to second guess wrong minded people.
To paraphrase one man's thought on this, "I have faith, please Lord, help my unbelief."

Well written post Delftsman (see posted by). I agree with most of what you had to say, but I also disagree with some.

All I will say is this... "only men of good moral faith are capable of making our form of government work." I agree with this statement. Without a strong moral fiber our government would not work. However, confusing moral faith with religious faith is a problem in our country. I do not believe in organized religion and I have a hard time believing in any god. However, I have a very strong moral fiber. There is no doubt that I could hold many political offices in better standing than many who have held those positions.
