John Jay

 

John Jay, first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, wrote in a letter to Reverend Morse dated January 1, 1813, the following:

 

"Whether our religion permits Christians to vote for infidel rulers, is a question which merits more consideration than it seems yet to have generally received, either from the clergy or the laity. It appears to me, that what the prophet said to Jehoshaphat about his attachment to Ahab, affords a salutary lesson on another interesting topic."
