Remarks about Church and State by Ronald Reagan in 1984

I believe that faith and religion play a critical role in the political life of our nation — and always has — and that the church — and by that I mean all churches, all denominations — has had a strong influence on the state. And this has worked to our benefit as a nation.

I heard about this speech from the radio, K-LOVE. It is intriguing that the issues that plague us today were hot issues in 1984. The scary thing is that his entire speech is just as appropiate to today's issues as they were in 1984. I cannot help but associate this lack of progress with the polarization of the political process. We just do not listen to the other side.
