Maharba, we are miles apart on our views of Lincoln, but I appreciate your answering my question.

Didn't William Seward himself compose the entirety of the Thanksgiving Proclamation? Didn't Abraham Lincoln mock God and Christianity to 'sophisticated folks'?

And I'll add to them:
Why was Lincoln even in his final years so resistant to God in his edicts and addresses?

I was wondering what your source is that would have you ask those questions? I've never heard such comments from a reliable source.

As for Herndon, he's not always the most reliable source on these aspects of Lincoln's life per Lincoln's Hendon by David Herbert Donald.

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?
