Darin,

Thanks for dropping in and for letting me know you were here.

Hi, Wade. Nice post. About a year ago, I read the first hundred pages of Meacham's book and thought it was really good. Well-informed and reasoned. Refreshing balance, etc. My sense is that the Founders assumed: (A) that the various versions of Christianity were generally true and that they represented a vital part of the foundation of this "New Order for the Ages." (B) that the future growth of, specifically, the Chrisian religion in America was assured. They don't seem to be thinking at all about the secularization of the republic and the influx various other world religions. Nevertheless, their/our Constitution is still very workable. But because we find ourselves in a context that, at least in some ways, is different from theirs, we have to confront a new set of questions. It certainly is an interesting time to be alive. This post makes it that much more interesting. Keep writing, my friend.

It makes me wonder what they would think about the decay of morality and irreverence found today. Would they change anything?
Good post.
