That quote from Washington is enough to make present deluded Progressives gnash their teeth. A good reason to try to take away any respect for Washington and his opinions, and they have done a pretty good job. They will even try to sell that Washington was not a Christian, when we have his prayers on record. As to his slave-holding, that is from ages upon ages, and still exists among Muslims. He knew it was wrong, thanks be to the people who were speaking out, and it must have eaten at him. Still far nobler than many an icon of our present Democrats.
George Washington warned us in his Farewell Address about a time in America's future when we might be tempted to discard the pillars of civility: "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them."

Let me give a great example of what Washington's words look like in action.
