Christian author and intellectual Eric Metaxas warns here that America is committing suicide.
In 1787, when the Constitution was drafted, a woman asked Benjamin Franklin what the founders had given the American people, Metaxas explained. "A republic," Franklin replied, adding, "If you can keep it."
"More than two centuries later, Metaxas examines what that means and how we are doing on that score,
... "We are at the very edge of losing the liberty that we have," Metaxas, author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy"
... "Self governance or liberty requires virtue; virtue requires faith; and faith in turn requires freedom," Metaxas said, explaining that there can't be virtue if there is no faith
... Separation of church and State means the state will keep its hands away from church, and not that we have to have a secular America, Metaxas underlined. "As soon as the government starts telling you what to believe, the whole thing dies."
