Quote Text: 

Secular schools can never be tolerated because such schools have no religious instruction, and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air.

Consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith.


This is a real quote, but Benjamin Franklin did not say it. Adolf Hitler said it in a speech made during the negotiations of the Nazi-Vatican Concordant of 1933.

Some quotes can be taken out of context and some quotes can be used to try to support a concept that isn't truly supported by the person making the statement, but to conflate Benjamin Franklin with Adolf Hitler seems a fairly egregious misrepresentation.
