    Somehow I think their owning slaves would get in the way of their electability.

    Shame the article contains alot of bullcrap. Such as the Washington was a Diest when the man was an active vestryman for the Anglican Church. People who don't believe generally don't volunteer their time to actively build the Church. Nor do they fund and encourage missionary trips. Nor do they widely quote scripture. Nor do they tutor their children in the faith.

    The FF's skepticism about government control of religion seems to be well founded. As a matter of fact they placed freedom of religion in the first limitation of government known as the "Bill of Rights". Maybe we will get over the majority decision of the Supreme Court by a justice appointed by FDR who was a former member of the KKK.

    keep telling yourself that

    i've seen this same bullshit argument roughly 400 times.

    "we're a christian country"

    "no we're not"

    "yes we are"

    christian this, deist that, blah blah blah

    the creator, the treaty of tripoli yap yap yap

    jefferson was a christian, washington never went to church

    we're a secular country with a population that is majority christian.

    move the fuck along already
