Patrick Henry on Foundational Values

Post Scriptus:  A reader pointed out a piece from SNOPES which challenges the attribution of Patrick Henry to this comment.  Other sources, like Wallbuilders consider this quote unconfirmed from primary sources but reflecting the founder's personal predilections.

Whether or not Patrick Henry uttered this pithy phrase, it does reflect this thinkers understanding of the ideal of the American Republic, which was founded by spiritual leaders from different religious persuasions which established a pluralistic polity which welcomes all creeds and those of no creed.
