"I love our country. But putting the Ten Commandments on the courthouse walls will not make people obey them any more than they do now. Putting prayer in schools will not make our children or teachers want to pray any more than they do now. And putting Christians in every government position will not make our country more righteous or more blessed by God than any other country. Jesus is not some sort of Bread King whom we put on the throne because he will stabilize our economy, ensure our health, rescue our jobs, multiply our money, or beef up our security. To give us what we need, Jesus cannot be the king of our country."

Thomas Edison, inventor (1847-1931)
"The price of freedom of religion or of speech or of the press is that we
must put up with, and even pay for, a good deal of rubbish."
Robert H. Jackson, US Supreme Court justice (1892-1954)
