LOL! Not a misstatement, just slightly out of context??
Kinda like 'six of one and half a dozen of the other'...oookay.
Jefferson was NOT a Christian, he denied the divinity of Jesus.
Please show me ANYWHERE I said *Jefferson was a Christian*
From my original post-
No one can understand the Founders intended meaning of 'Republic', or the principals of the Constitution unless they understand certain parts of the Bible, or as the Founders referred to it....'the laws of Nature and Nature's God.'
(Psst!...prohibitions against theft, murder, lying ARE in the Bible, you know)
You're so busy running around trying to put out the 'Jefferson was a Christian' fires, you don't even realize I never struck a match.
If it were up to me, school kids would also read all 4 volumes of Montesquieu, a wonderful treatise comparing different forms of governments, and one of the most quoted sources of the Founders:
Of the Simplicity of Criminal Laws in different Governments
In republican governments, men are all equal;
equal they are also in despotic governments:
in the former, because they are everything;
in the latter, because they are nothing.
THE SPIRIT OF LAWS Book VI By Charles de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu
