Publius2 quoted Ben Franklin: "God governs in the affairs of man. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured in the Sacred Writings that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. I firmly believe this. I also believe that, without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel"

Maybe if God would get his eye off the sparrow and pay attention to all the c.r.a.p that's going on in the world today, humans might be better off. Or not.

By the way, Pubby, Franklin wrote enough quotes in his lifetime to fill up a whole bunch of almanacs. But not one of those quotes is in our Constitution, so his words don't affect our laws today. Ben did invent a good stove, though.
