Despite the words of the FF to the contrary, despite the fact that almost every state constitution refers to God, despite the fact that our Declaration refers to God, the revisionists want to say that we were not founded upon Christian values. They apparently think that if we acknowledge that fact, it makes us a theocracy. Of course it doesn't, that's ridiculous. But this is the standard for the brain washed loons. Anyway, we were founded upon Christian principles, and no, that does not make us a theocracy nor does it mean the FF wanted a theocracy (they most certainly did not). Unfortunately, the left has issues with the language and with truth in general, so I don't think they will every be able to conceptualize this. Interesting: "There are several issues on which I refuse to compromise, but when it comes to discussing the details of government budgets or even immigration and the War in Iraq, I am hardly offended when someone disagrees with me. In fact, I often thoroughly enjoy such conversations, provided I am dealing with someone who is intellectually honest. However, the kind of blatant revisionism in question is beyond irritating; indeed, it is representative of intellectual dishonesty at its absolute worst. " Consider, for example, the words of Adams himself. In one of several letters to Thomas Jefferson, as Adams and Jefferson reminisced about Americas fight for independence and the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Adams wrote: The general Principles, on which the Fathers Atchieved [sic] Independence, were the only Principles in which that beautiful Assembly of young Gentlemen could Unite . . . . And what were these general Principles? I answer, the general Principles of Christianity, in which all those Sects were United: And the general Principles of English and American Liberty, in which all those young Men United, and which had United all Parties in America, in Majorities sufficient to assert and maintain her Independence. Now I will avow, that I then believed, and now believe, that those general Principles of Christianity, are as eternal and immutable, as the Existence and Attributes of God; and that those Principles of Liberty, are as unalterable as human Nature and our terrestrial, mundane System."
