“There lives more faith in honest doubt, believe me, than in half the creeds.”—Alfred, Lord Tennyson
“As we celebrate this July 4th, there is much to be thankful for and, as Tennyson admonishes us, much to challenge. An election year in which a president will be chosen is as fine a time as any to examine our creeds and symbols. It is a time to raise honest doubt about who shall lead us and why. Whether at the White House or in Congress: Who are you who wish to lead? Our faith must be earned.
Equally important, who are we who wish to follow? Is big government acceptable or is Ronald Reagan’s vision of personal responsibility the better road to travel? To be an American means being passionate. It means leaving our children a better tomorrow. This is real patriotism, the stuff of heroes. How we live is who we are.”—Paul M.
