The time has come that Christians must vote for honest men and take consistent ground in politics or the Lord will curse them...Christians have been exceedingly guilty in this matter. But the time has come when they must act differently...God will bless or curse this nation, according to the course Christians take.
Rev. Charles G. Finney (1792-1875), revivalist in the Second and Third Great Awakening, College President
Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty - as well as the privilege and interest - of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.
John Jay (1745-1829), Original Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court
The people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities....If the next centennial does not find us a great nation...it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.
Rev. James A. Garfield (1831-1881), United States President, Minister of the Gospel
