A short illustration of my characterization of him in this post, taken from the following piece in The Public Discourse: Nation of Faith, Nation of Immigrants by Charles J. Chaput.
He closes: "America, from its beginnings, has been a nation of faith and a nation of immigrants." Actually, there is a significant difference between colonists and immigrants. As for his approval of Alexander Hamilton as "one of America’s most revered Founding Fathers"... Certainly there is a problem with one's understanding of the United States and conservatism if Hamilton is representative of the Anglo-American tradition. His understanding of American identity seems to be consonant with the Proposition Nation, though he attempts to graft religion upon it.
