There is simply no historic foundation
for the position that the Framers intended
to build the 'wall of separation' that was
constitutionalized in Everson. The 'wall
of separation between church and state'
is a metaphor based on bad history,
a metaphor which has proved useless
as a guide to judging. It should be frankly
and explicitly abandoned.   
          
- Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, William Rehnquist

===

In 1796 the US Supreme Court issued
this ruling, "By our form of government,
the Christian religion is the established
religion, and all sects and denominations
of Christians are placed on equal footing."
Some 57 years later, after Congress was
petitioned to separate Christian principles
from government, in 1853 the House Judiciary
Committee issued their formal report, including
these words: "In this age there is no substitute
for Christianity. This was the religion of the
founders of the republic, and they expected
it to be the religion of their dependents. The
great vital, conservative elements in our system
is the belief of our people in the pure doctrines
and divine truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ."

- Dr. Gerald Beavan

I am trying here to prevent anyone from saying
the really foolish thing that people often say
about Him [Jesus Christ]: "I'm ready to accept
Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don't
accept His claim to be God."

That is the one thing we must not say. A man
who was merely a man and said the sort of
things Jesus said would not be a great moral
teacher. He would either be a lunatic -- on a
level with a man who says he is a poached
egg -- or else he would be the Devil of Hell.

You must make your choice. Either this Man
was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman
or something worse ....

You can shut Him up for fool, you can spit
at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can
fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God.
But let us not come up with any patronizing
nonsense about His being a great human
teacher. He has not left that option open
to us. He did not intend to.

"Let every student be plainly instructed
and earnestly pressed to consider well
the main end of his life and studies is
to know God and Jesus Christ which is
eternal life (John 17:3)."

The Laws and Statutes of Harvard College in 1643

"All scholars shall live religious, godly,
and blameless lives according to the rules
of God's Word, diligently reading the Holy
Scriptures, the fountain of light and truth;
and constantly attend upon all the duties
of religion, both in public and secret."

Two central requirements in Yale College 1745 charter
