The Bible & War


On 19 November 1863 Genocide Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address, wherein he did not apologize for all those whom his policies had killed, and stole the last line of his speech from 14th century church Reformer John Wycliffe's 1384 Prologue to his English Bible translation: "this Bible is for the Government of the People, by the People, and for the People." Fascinating that Lincoln replaces the Bible with War to govern the people.
