Bob lies about Madison

Today, Bob informed his listeners that James Madison said that "religion is the basis and foundation of government." Bob went on to say that the religion Madison was referring to was Christianity.

The problem: Madison said no such thing.

You have to omit dozens of words from Madison's Memorial and Remonstrance Against Religious Assessments to arrive at "religion is the basis and foundation of government" and, in the process, take Madison's words completely out of context. Check it out for yourself.

Bob Dutko -- fearlessly bearing false witness.
