Washington’s Birthday

John J. Miller calls our attention to this essay by Matthew Spalding, which reminds us that officially, today is still Washington’s Birthday. For more on this, see last year’s post (with comments).

If you’e more interested in the man than in the day, this interview with Michael and Jana Novak offers a nice preview of Washington’s God.

So much for the book I wanted to write. I am sure the Novaks book is very good and Philip Munoz’s book with Kansas is forthcoming on America’s civil religion.

Washington would have never been elected in today’s political climate. He would have been seen as religious nut, as would most of our Founders.
