This wonderful article ran in my local paper yesterday, and I'll be honest: I love it. I wish I could send it to everyone in American government. I wish many members of Congress who claim America is a Christian nation would read this and realize our founding fathers were deists and often denied Christianity as we think of it. Maybe then they would either realize they're taking this country down a terrible road our founding fathers never wanted us to go down - or they'll admit they just use the founding fathers as a crutch as often as they do the Bible.
The ultimate irony? These men that politicians idolize so much would (in my eyes) undoubtedly never make it into office.
Think about that. The men that founded our country, would never make it into office today.
What exactly did these men believe, then? Give this a read and find out! It won't disappoint.
