Any violation of the religious conscience of the Christian church would be harmful to the common good of the citizens of Virginia and our country...it does us well to remember the words of George Washington in his Farewell Address of 1797...
"And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. It is substantially true, that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule, indeed, extends with more or less force to every species of free government. Who, that is a sincere friend to it, can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric?"
May God give you wisdom before you attempt to tinker with His design for the family.
Pastor Bruce Bennett
