Foreign Entanglements

"A passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils.

Sympathy for the favorite nation facilitates the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, infuses into one the enmities of the other, and betrays the former into participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification."

(George Washington, Farewell Address, 1796)

Great quote! Why do we have so much disdain for the words of our founders?

Bro. Tim,

I think it all came together for us when we learned to hate their disgusting secular humanism. I mean, how can you possibly run a government without God, anyway?
