Exactly one citation, in the date of the document, does not a theocracy make, regardless of your wishes.

Exactly, and in accord with my wishes.

And Jesus was NOT the "Lord" of some of those folks - like Paine, Franklin and Jefferson, who were Deists.

Of those three, at least Franklin and Jefferson had to admit to at least a kind of lordship of Jesus, as they related.

The Founders were interested in protecting religious freedom, including the freedom of those who had NO religion. Selectively quoting and thumping your Bible harder won't make it any less true.

I don't disagree with that at all. If you find anyone who does, please introduce him to this thread.

Then perhaps I misunderstood the thrust of the thread, and the comments about atheists.
