"Choosing Sides"

At a White House dinner, a churchman offered a benediction and closed
with the pious affirmation: “The Lord is on our side.”

When President Lincoln did not respond to this sentiment, someone asked
him, “Don’t you believe, Mr. President, that the Lord is always on the
side of the right?”

“I am not concerned about that,” was Lincoln’s answer, “for we know that
the Lord is always on the side of the right. My concern is that I and
this nation should be on the Lord’s side.”
