Dear Christian Nationalist: My founding fathers quote can beat up your founding fathers quote

Dear Christian Nationalist,

Let's all stop posting cherry-picked quotes from our forefathers as if it should be the final word, okay?

Let's evolve beyond the idea that a single quote can shut down a discussion. If you post a quote, then accompany it with your own words. Who wrote it? Who was their audience? What were they trying to tell their audience? Why do you think it's a good quote, and how does it support your position?
