"I have examined all the known superstitions of the world and I do not find
in our particular superstition of Christianity one redeeming feature. They
are all alike founded on fables and mythology. Millions of innocent men,
women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been
burnt, tortured, fined, and imprisoned. What has been the effect of this
coercion? To make one half the world fools and the other half hypocrites; to
support roguery and error all over the earth."
"Christianity...(has become) the most perverted system that ever shone on
man...Rogueries, absurdities and untruths were perpetrated upon the
teachings of Jesus by a large band of dupes and imposters led by Paul, the
first great corruptor of the teachings of Jesus."
"Question with boldness the existence of God. I do not believe any of the Christian doctrines. The greatest enemies of Jesus are the doctrines and creeds of the church. It would be more pardonable to believe in no God at all then to blaspheme him by the atrocious writings of the theologians. John Calvin was a demon and malignant spirit."
"The doctrine of the divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for
"The Government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the
"I would not dare to so dishonor my Creator God by attaching His name to
that book (the Bible)."
"It is the duty of every true Diest to vindicate the moral justice of God
against the evils of the Bible."
"Accustom a people to believe that priests and clergy can forgive sins...and
you will have sins in abundance."
"The Christian church has set up a religion of pomp and revenue in
pretend imitation of a person (Jesus) who lived a life of poverty."
The Christian God is a being of terrific character- cruel, vindictive, capricious and unjust.
During fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What has been it its fruits? More or less, in all places, pride and indolences in the clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution.
As I understand the Christian religion, it was, and is, a revelation. But how it has happened that millions of fables, tales, legends have been blended with both Jewish and Christian revelation that have made them the most bloody religion that ever existed.
I almost shudder at the thought of alluding to the most fatal example of the abuses of grief which the history of mankind has produced- the Cross. Consider what calamities that engine of grief has produced.
Shake off all fears of servile prejudices, under which weak mines are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.

Hi serbsta, are you talking about America pre-independence, or when america was declared independant in it own right?
If its answers into the masonic pre-independence history I can recommend a very concise read in : Micheal Baigent & Richard Leighs' book; The Temple And The Lodge.
Although I was never particularly interested in the history of 'white america', I found this book hard to put down!

Too right america is not a christian country and never was. People use christian beliefs to hide what they really felt, and believed in.
I believe that america was set up for what it is doing today, i know you guys think that is not possible but i think the powers running the play or show here on earth plan far ahead. Like whats going on today in america was planned for decades, just obama is playing his role in the performance and just having his day in the sun.
