Faith of Our Founders

By: Michael Donnelly, Esq.


In 1775, Patrick Henry said, ?Give me liberty or give me death!? You know that the founders of our country were mostly Christian men who understood that liberty meant Christian liberty. But how much a part of our founding was the faith of our founders? John Hancock?s and John Adams? battle cry was one of ?No King, but King Jesus.? While secular historians want to minimize the impact of the founders? faith, the truth is that 93% of the founders were members of Christian churches. A knowledge of our history is critical if we are to ever recover our nation?s heritage. Michael Donnelly is an HSLDA Attorney and an Adjunct Professor at Patrick Henry College where he teaches constitutional law. Listen as he unearths the truth and import of the faith of our founders.
