RE: Lincoln as secular saint
Note the term "secular saint" is a term of art covering very good people who are not revered by a specific religion. If you go to the Wikipedia article for the term, you will note that such people as Audrey Hepburn, Florence Nightingale, Clara Barton, and Ann Frank (who was a secular Jew) are or were listed as "secular saints". It has nothing to do with the Second Coming or the Roman or Orthodox churches formal process of canonization. It can be said that Lincoln "worshippers" have turned him into a "secular saint."
