“The Declaration of Independence is the all-time masterpiece of ideological simplification. There in a single sentence of self-evident truth, the founding Fathers put into clear, easily understandable focus, the broad basis of man’s relationship to God, to government, and to his fellow man.”
— Clarence Manion (1896-1979) American conservative radio talk show host, dean of the Notre Dame Law School 1956
I’d never heard of “Clarence Manion” before. Interesting fellow. He capsulizes very well the interactions of a sound government with natural law: God – Government – Man. Even though it is not a theocracy, a sound government very much has God in it. And in these times where we are experiencing a communist insurgency with the BLM movement, it does one well to remember the key component of communism: It cannot coexist with the Christian God. It was tagged “godless communism” for a reason.
