Frowny faces to James Madison and Noah Webster.
Mr Madison, everything beautiful in Western Civilization was built through what you call the “worst of Government”, i.e., through Christendom. What you despised Mr. Madison was a Christian society that believed its first duty was to God. It built the beautiful Cathedrals and restored classical learning. You despised a form of government that believed its primary duty was the spiritual well-being of its citizens and the salvation of their souls.
Your society Mr. Madison? …is nothing less than an “Enlightenment” which leads its citizens to damnation. It has been nothing less than the tearing down of that 1300 year Christian civilization to what is today a vulgar and pornographic society that easily rivals the debased moral morass of ancient Rome. No thanks Mr. Madison. Give me Christendom any day. You will know them by their fruits.
“The principal author of the constitution, James Madison, wrote to a Reverend Adams in 1832 that: ‘In the Papal System, Government and Religion are in a manner consolidated, and that is found to be the worst of Government.’
These sentiments required for their practical execution the creation of a distinct American character, made-to-order rather than organically developed over long centuries influenced by the Faith, as happened in Europe. There must be, in as many ways as possible, a radical divorce from both the mother country and the rest of Old Europe.
Foremost in the pursuance of this goal was Noah Webster, famous as the creator of Webster’s Dictionary of the American Language. The very name of the book tells us something about his intentions in altering the spelling of such words as honour, centre, and recognise to honor, center, and recognize.
This change he called a ‘reform.’ In a 1789 essay he justified it on several grounds, but the one which most concerned him was simply that it ‘would make a difference between the English orthography and the American…I am confident that such an event is an object of vast political consequence.’ “
