"The bill read: “Whosoever shall be guilty of rape, polygamy, or sodomy with a man or woman, shall be punished; if a man, by castration, a woman, by boring through the cartilage of her nose a hole of one half inch in diameter at the least.” (Virginia Bill number 64; authored by Jefferson; 18 June 1779)"

Another reason not to deify the founding fathers.

As to his understanding of biology, form designates function.

As to his namesake, pretty despicable. Doesn't nullify whatever truth in his arguments.

If he doesn't mean what he says, that's his loss.

What the 'historian' was saying was, that the words seperation of church and state, were never found in that order in the Dansbery letter from T Jefferson. They are found in the Communist Manifesto. I am not saying that is correct, but the T Jefferson letter did not have that phrase in it.
