Lincoln An Atheist, Ha!

 I was looking around the collected writings of Abraham Lincoln and came across this passage that shows he came to the came conclusion about the motivating power of religion in the struggle against slavery and in the demand for rights that I mention below.

It is a cheering thought throughout life that something can be done to ameliorate the condition of those who have been subject to the hard usages of the world. It is difficult to make a man miserable while he feels he is worthy of himself and claims kindred to the great God who made him. 

Abraham Lincoln:  August 14, 1862
