Man...I'm so tired of these "liberal" activist judges pushing their agenda.
and regardless of Thomas Crown's declaration that the "Founding Fathers wanted this to be a Christian nation" most didn't. The first 7 presidents
were high-ranking 'free' masons and 'free' thinkers. This was done deliberately to set the tone for this country. A tone that they wanted to
reflect from the European enlightenment period mixed with German mysticism.
These men were far more advanced philosophically than the "jesus chanting sheep" of today. Lets take a look eh kiddies??
"The Treaty of Tripoli, drafted while Washington was still the nation's chief executive, was unanimously ratified by the U.S. Senate in 1797.
Article Eleven of that treaty states:
“As the government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself not character of enmity against the
laws, religion or tranquility of Musslemen [Muslims] . . . it is declared . . . that no pretext arising from religious opinion shall ever produce an
interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.”
hmm..must be one of those leftist-commie sites distorting the true meaning of the founding fathers...right? I mean, it does say, "is not in any
sense founded on the Christian religion" but I'm sure thats taken out of context.
wait...how about the words of a "founding father" Thomas Jefferson, "Millions of men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity,
have been burned, tortured, fined, imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch toward uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one
half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the earth."
Maybe thats taken out of context...maybe that statment came out right after he said, "God is good, Jesus is great...all others will burn in hell for
their disbelief". Ahha. Now it makes sense. He probably just said that to score some.
Wait...how about some more TJ, ""Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one he must more approve of the homage of
Reason than of blindfolded fear . . . [N]aturally examine, first the religion of your own country. Read the Bible . . . For example, in the book of
Joshua we are told the sun stood for several hours . . . it is said that the writer of that book was inspired."
Now that is truly one jesus loving freak there! DAMN! Wait, I have more.
"The clergy, by getting themselves established by law and ingrafted into the machine of government, have been a very formidable engine against the
civil and religious rights of man. " Ya.
Of course this has been taken out of context yet again..
What it really means (transalted into 21st century linguistics) is, "Jesus is just
alright with me!"
YA! say it again kids!
"The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the Supreme Being as his father, in the womb of a virgin, will be classed with the fable
of the generation of Mineva in the brain of Jupiter."
Man that Thomas J is one deceptive mofo. It almost sounds like.......nah, it couldn't be. I mean, Thomas Crown (SUPER MODERATOR) and intellectual
giant has blanketed us with THE TRUTH. I'll repeat it for the weary. "The founding fathers wanted this to be a Christian Nation". Everybody
ok...maybe its this Thomas Jefferson guy. He was kind of a loner...and he was banging a black chick...so there's NO way he was a "Christian"
But the REST of the Founding fathers wanted this to be a Christian Nation...so lets continue learning.
Thomas Paine, "Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness
with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history
of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind."
Damn...I'll be that guy is a priest or something...
“As to religion, I hold it to be the indispensable duty of all government to protect all conscientious professors thereof, and I know of no other
business which government hath to do therewith.” Thomas Paine
"During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What has been its fruits? More or less, in all places,
pride and indolence in the clergy; ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution." James Madison
“Religion and government will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.” James Madison
“Every new and successful example of a perfect separation between ecclesiastical and civil matters is of importance.” James Madison
“The establishment of the chaplainship in Congress is a palpable violation of equal rights as well as of Constitutional principles." James Madison
"I almost shudder at the thought of alluding to the most fatal example of the abuses of grief which the history of mankind has preserved--the Cross.
Consider what calamities that engine of greed has produced!" John Adams
"The 'divinity' of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity. Nowhere in the Gospels do we find a precept for Creeds, Confessions, Oaths,
Doctrines and whole carloads of other foolish trumpery that we find Christianity encumbered with." John Adams
"When a religion is good, I conceive it will support itself; and when it does not support itself, and God does not take care to support it so that
its professors are obliged to call for help of the civil power, 'tis a sign, i apprehend, of its being a bad one." Benjamin Franklin

Now I'll admit that these are some of the LESSER known of the "founding father" and I have obviously taken their words, writings, declarations and
publications out of context...but what can I say. I am the Voice of Doom...and you will all learn, in this life or the next.
