Compare and contrast to the Lord's Prayer.
And what mr said
Great piece. Quite moving
Pity we've fallen so far.
Compare with the new age blather above.
@mr: Here you go.
Sorry, John, doesn't work.But you can get the gist of what George wanted to say.No Herbert Obama focus group phrases.Just eloquent English.
mr and phx, if you google the title of the article, or a piece of the text, you can go to the uncut article.
John, the user must actually click through from google for that to work. It won't work to simply paste the URL you clicked after googling the article. For those who'd like to read the full article, just google the headline and click on the WSJ link.
John Burgess, I tried to supply the same link, but I think the reader has to do their own googling.
That reminds us that the American experience has always included a stubborn belief in pro-Zionist principles.The haters of Jews are the weirdos in America. Common sense is just not easily fooled by a European cult issuing illusions to be used against Jews.This is one more reason that Obama is probably not a natural American, no matter who arranged a birth certificate for his mother.
Letter from Moses Seixas with response from G. Washington.
Washington's language sounds stately and worthy of divine purposes. Whatever the pros and cons of religious belief, growing up with the King James Bible doesn't hamper one's prose style.
George Washington attended church with his wife Martha for many years but was never a formal member of the congregation and did not take communion, unlike his wife. His pastor, John Abercrombie, noticed this and said in a sermon that it sent a poor example when people of high station refused communion. And so George Washington stopped coming altogether.Whatever his private religious convictions may have been--and it is debated whether he was a Christian or a Deist--he kept them private.His letter to the synagogue is, I think, the epitome of what religious toleration should be.
George Washington's church was Church of England. I read that he was opposed to taking communion in a church headed by King George III.wv= sarron
Our greatest president. No matter how manly our future presidents are it is unlikely they will merit a 555ft white marble penis as their monument. Big George fully deserves it.
@ken in sc:I read that he was opposed to taking communion in a church headed by King George III.He was President of the US at the time and the Episcopal church was not headed by George III, and hadn't been since 1786.
Nice comment Gabriel Hanna.
Subscriber only. And, I'm not a joiner. Seems George Washington's letter gets read aloud, annually.
George Washington didn't have a speech or letter writer.
