Curious as to how many people here look up to our founding fathers as devout Christians? I'm not so sure that the situation is exactly as alot of people believe. Apparently alot of them weren't Christian at all, they were Deists, basically believing in God but not believing in Jesus being devine. Plus, they drank alot. George Washington was one of the biggest dark beer lovers in all of history. Benjamin Franklin once said "Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants to see us happy" (although he wasn't a heavy drinker, but I do like that quote). Thomas Jefferson was probably the most outspoken Deists of all of them, he had an awesome wine collection, he brewed his own beer, and had sex with his slaves. Last but not least, they were escaping religious persecution and wanted religious freedom for everyone. I just don't understand how I can read historic facts like this then see people who genuinely believe that these same people were all devout Christians and wanted Christianity in our government. I'm guessing that people WANT this to be the case, but from what I can tell, it wasn't.
