All societies of men must be governed in some way or other. The less they may have of stringent State Government, the more they must have of individual self-government . . . Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, . . . either by the word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet. It may do for other countries and other governments to talk about the State supporting religion. Here, under our own free institutions, it is Religion which must support the State.Robert Winthrop, descendant of famous Pilgrim & Governor John Winthrop
