Faith of Our Fathers

It's match the quote with the speaker game!

A) "...the impious presumption of legislators and rulers, civil as well as ecclesiastical, who, being themselves but fallible and uninspired men, have assumed dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavoring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world and through all time."

B) "Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprize....What have been [Christianity's] fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the Clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity, in both, superstition, bigotry, and persecution."

C) "Do I think faith will be an important part of being a good president? Yes, I do....When you turn your heart and your life over to Christ, when you accept Christ as the savior, it changes your heart."

D) "A man compounded of law and gospel is able to cheat a whole country with his religion and then destroy them under color of law."

1) Michael Moore
2) George W. Bush
3) Thomas Jefferson
4) John Wayne Gacy
5) Benjamin Franklin
6) Hillary Clinton
7) James Madison
8) Lee Harvey Oswald
9) Jason Voorhees

For the answers, you need to check out the fascinating article "Our ____ Constitution" by Brooke Allen in The Nation. (Hate to be coy with the blank, but I don't want to give the answers away.) Oh, and the quote you probably do recognize is found here.
