RE: Lincoln's Christianity by Michael Burkhimer
And that's my point, Eva. Whether or not Lincoln prayed, that is irrelevant to the larger question of whether he could be considered a Christian. Given that prayer is a significant practice in a number of religions, that he may or may not have done so proves nothing. Before one can make a thesis with any certainty, an objective set of standards has to be determined. Prayer in and of itself is not an objective standard.


Abraham Lincoln is the only man, dead or alive, with whom I could have spent five years without one hour of boredom.

I want the respect of intelligent men, but I will choose for myself the intelligent.
