President Zachary Taylor Says the Bible Is Indispensable

The Bible is…indispensable to the safety and permanence of our institutions; a free government cannot exist without religion and morals, and there cannot be morals without religion, nor religion without the Bible.
–  Zachary Taylor (1784-1850),  12th president of the United States
