Washington’s Day of Thanksgiving and Prayer – Jimmy Madison Would Not Approve

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - George Washington issued proclamations that led to Thanksgiving and the National Day of Prayer, the latter of which did not sit well with Jimmy Madison. After the Convention, Madison developed a "hands off" view of the National Government as it relates to religion. In the early days, there was no separation of religion and government. Many of Congress's meetings began and ended with prayer. During Monroe's presidency, Madison didn't think that the government should be paying Chaplain's to visit the troops, now if he had tried this just 20 years earlier, no one would have even listened to him, but by the 1790's things had already changed.

“No Conservatism Without a Religious Foundation” – Russell Kirk

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Russell Kirk asked, "Can there be any robust conservatism in American life WITHOUT a religious devotion?" The answer is a resounding "No". He also wrote that a society that denies religion also lacks faith, charity, and compassion and "When a nation ignores the divine authority, it soon commits the excesses of fanatic nationalism, intoxicated with its own unchecked power, which have made the twentieth century terrible." He wrote this back in 1957, how do you think he would feel now? With everyone clamouring for one-size-fits-all solutions for everything from gun laws to abortions and America having troops in practically every country on the planet?
