In 1892, Justice Josiah David Brewer writing in Church of the Holy Trinity vs.
U.S., the unanimous supreme Court decision which has never been overturned, held as a matter of law, fact, and history that
“…this is a Christian nation,” because our laws and public institutions are
founded on Biblical principles from the Old and New Testaments. Brewer
continues, “this is historically true. From the discovery of this continent to the present hour, there is a single voice making this affirmation…we find everywhere a clear recognition of the same truth…this is a Christian nation.”
The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: It connected in one indispensable bond the principles of civil government with he principles of Christianity.
