A famous Revolutionary leader and orator, Patrick Henry said “Give me liberty, or give me death” which became the battle cry of the American Revolution.  He was a five-time Governor of Virginia. He once declared:

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”
