Dinesh D'Souza Quotes: Visiting America In The Early Nineteenth

Visiting America In The Early Nineteenth Century, Alexis De Tocqueville Observd That 'the Sects That Exist In The United States Are Innumerable,' And Yet 'all Sects Preach The Same Moral Law In The Name Of God.' Tocqueville Termed Religion The First Of America's Political Institutions, Which Means That It Had A Profoundly Public Effect In Regulating Morality And Mores Throughout The Society. And He Saw Christianity As Countering The Powerful Human Instincts Of Selfishness And Ambition By Holding Out An Ideal Of Charity And Devotion To The Welfare Of Others.
