Our Founding Fathers were not Christians!

Saw this Phil Robertson quote posted to Facebook and had to respond.

Um… no. America was founded by men who were primarily Deists and who also understood the dangers of religious tyranny and theocracy. If you take the time to do the research and read what our Founding Fathers actually had to say about the Christian God and the Christian religion, you would find that they had very unfavorable things to say about both. Thomas Jefferson took the time to create his own version of the Bible, which is still available today. He took out all of the supernatural bullshit and left in the stuff that he liked. Needless to say, with the supernatural bullshit gone, Jefferson’s Bible is a much thinner book than most Bibles are.

America is not a Christian nation. America is and always has been a secular constitutional republic.

One comment on “Our Founding Fathers were not Christians!

  1. As a child I was told Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy was real and I believed it
    till I was like 12. I found out it was all a bunch of bullshit. So, why should I believe someone when
    they claim God exists? I want there to be an afterlife where I see my family and friends who have
    passed but there is no sufficient evidence to prove it exists. I consider myself to be agnostic/atheist.
