Daily Quote of Awesome

"Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of an established religion tends to make the clergy unresponsive to their own people, and leads to corruption within religion itself. Erecting the "wall of separation between church and state," therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society".

--Thomas Jefferson

Oh, you should (I actually did, before I posted it here). Thomas J. had his issues, but in some ways he was way ahead of his time. And he was a Unitarian!
