"It is part of our civic duty to be moral in our conduct toward all
people. There is no place in responsible citizenship for dishonesty or
deceit or for willful law breaking of any kind. We believe with the
author of Proverbs that “righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a
reproach to any people.” (Prov. 14:34.) The personal righteousness of citizens will strengthen a nation more than the force of its arms.
