Then your misstatement pertaining to Jefferson referring to the Bible as a *dunghill* was not by accident, but by design.
He also said... "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 Minerva in the brain of Jupiter."
Ahem...obviously, you're one of those FReepers who do not desire discourse, but only to say the same thing over and over hoping someone will believe it.
If you'll notice, my last post contains the ENTIRE quote the above was excerpted from, which ends:
But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with all this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this the most venerated reformer of human errors
Also, who is David J. Voelker, and what makes him an authority on Jefferson?
Wouldn't it follow the laws of 'logic and reason' for someone who was interested in the truth to read the writings of Jefferson for themselves instead of giving credence to someone else's interpretation?
