Abstract : The steeples of our nation's churches and synagogues bear witness to the fact that our nation is probably one of the most religious nations on earth. Our inclusion of clergy and religious organizations in many of our civic activities is further witness to our acknowledgement of the importance of religion in community life. This deliberate involvement of religion in local events is rooted deeply in our past, beginning with those English settlers who first arrived in the New World seeking a place to worship God without undue interference from the Crown. Our founding fathers, endowed with the spiritual values of those early settlers, gave us a new nation based on their vision of God and government. Their vision was one of a secular government openly dependent on the Providence of God for the welfare of both the government and the people. That vision of one nation under God has been maintained by national leaders to a greater or lesser degree for most of our nation's history. The impact of that vision has greatly influenced the political, economic and social direction of our people since the nation's founding.
