Comments

If I am not mistaken, Lincoln actually did end up sorta embracing Christianity again.

On that same page, Lincoln ponders: "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

Thank.
You.
What document is that?

Along the same lines, but with more wonder:

"My objection to supernatural beliefs is precisely that they miserably fail to do justice to the sublime grandeur of the real world. They represent a narrowing-down from reality, and impoverishment of what the real world has to offer." ... p.614, "The Ancestor's Tale", Richard Dawkins.

"If I am not mistaken, Lincoln actually did end up sorta embracing Christianity again."

Well, at least in his public pronouncements. Honest Abe was very good at lying and pious hypocrisy, when the situtation called for it.

"very good at lying and pious hypocrisy, when the situtation called for it"
So what you are saying is that Lincoln was a politician?

Go on, pull the other one.
