    National morality, spiritual sustenance (04/10/02)
    In a speech recently to the National Religious Broadcasters convention, Attorney General John Ashcroft put the war on terrorism in religious terms. Specifically, he said, "We are a nation called to defend freedom -- a freedom that is not the grant of any government or document, but is our endowment from God." Barry Lynn, whose organization supports a radical view of the separation of church and state, was vocally critical of the statements, saying, "It seems to increase the perception that Ashcroft cannot separate his religious agenda from his public office." Perhaps someone ought to remind Lynn that Ashcroft is merely echoing the sentiments of the men who founded this country. ...
