national morality

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.
In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to
subvert these great pillars of human happiness — these firmest props
of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both
forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of
religious principles.”

– George Washington
