A monument to the foundations of liberty

A lesson now pervasively lost, but worth remembering:

Never mind that Cameron is a pre-millenialist rapture-touting fundamentalist. Never mind that the monument is of Puritan inspiration. Never mind that the nation's founding was a collective Jeffersonian-Enlightenment-Masonic-Protestant compromise. There's a lesson in stone here, which a Catholic must admire for what it is: true liberty must be founded upon faith and morals and the rule of divine law.
