Richard Brookhiser: Religion of U.S. Founding Fathers
The Hoover Institution - Hoover Institution
Should we care what the founders would say about modern-day America? Richard Brookhiser says yes.If so, how should we consider some of our thornier contemporary issues in light of what the founders thought, such as "originalism" in constitutional matters, America as a "religious" nation if not a Christian nation, or even the fundamental principles of U.S. foreign policy?Even the bruising political battles currently being waged in Washington may be better understood in the context of the political wars our founders fought when the Republic was born - Hoover Institution
