First-you people need to do research on our founding fathers-they held church services in the Capitol.There are a few of you with many names on here and some of us can see right through you..Islam is not only a religion/mind set-it is a way of life for them..Every country they reside in is in a turmoil.They are doing exactly what their quran teaches them to do.You all need to read it.Mohammy was a pervert,liar and evil person.They are here to bring us down from the inside and their way of life neither fits our way of life nor our beloved Constitution..We are the infidels and they are told in the quran to change us or to use the sword..We will one day regret that anyone allowed them to move here.They have already changed the way of life in the Netherlands by out numbering the generations after generations of sweet,kind people..All of you using many names and fake towns need to get a life.
Thomas Jefferson said Paul was a "Corrupter of the teachings of Jesus", and thought the Idea of Jesus being divine was silly..he even wrote the Jeffersonian Bible, which deleted all of Jesus's miracles. Ben franklin was probably an atheist, Adams and Madison were Deists, Monroe was indifferent to religon. Where you getting your "facts" from...Swaggarts? FOX "News" (LOL at "news"), or hate groups like the American Family Association? I HATE reisionist history that the American-Taliban-wannabe's (aka "Evangelicals") spew out!

Muddy--I will not argue with you--people can do their own research..Just a sample of info,that you like to be ugly about--24 of 54 signers of the Declaration were heads of seminaries.The first meeting of Congress was opened with a three hour prayer session,etc.The ones you quoted from also claimed to be Christians,maybe not strong ones but never-the-less they claimed there was a higher source,they believed.I am Christian and I don't believe in the Trinity,either..That is something the Deists thought.The Washington Monument has a Christian saying at the top.Also, if you start out at a certain point and sightsee you will follow a layout of a cross..I hate it when people like you don't know what you are talking about.You sound very ignorant..How's that work for you? Full of hate!

If you hate revisionist history, why do you accept it instead of the real thing? Was it necessary to smear Fox news and viciously label the AFA a hate organization which it is not? What do either have to do with the Founding Fathers? You’re being irrational.
It’s clear you learned your history from revised sources with their distorted versions of the truth. Jefferson may not have believed in his early life in the Divinity of Jesus but he revered Jesus and his teachings. Like many, you are wrong in labeling the book he wrote “Jefferson’s Bible”. It was not written by Jefferson as that but was written for the purpose of sending the teachings of Jesus to the Indians, for whom he had the entire Bible published and paid missionaries with US Government funds to take those Bibles and his book to the Indians. He believed the Bible would be of great benefit to the Indians and especially wanted them to learn of Jesus, hence his book on the teachings of Jesus. It was not a revision of the Bible, as those ignorant of history like to insist today.

Read this prayer of President Jefferson for our nation. Does it sound like the prayer of an atheist?-- "Almighty God, Who has given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech Thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Thy favor and glad to do Thy will.

Bless our land with honorable ministry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion, from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people, the multitude brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues.

Endow with Thy spirit of wisdom those whom in Thy name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that through obedience to Thy law, we may show forth Thy praise among the nations of the earth. In time of prosperity fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in Thee to fail; all of which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." -- Washington D.C., March 4, 1801http://spiritualheritage.b logspot.com/2011/09/911.html

Franklin was a Deist, not an atheist. He believed the Christian religion was necessary to run our Government. He stated “We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings that except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it. I firmly believe; and I also believe that without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel”--Letter to James Madison, The Papers of James Madison, Vol. II, page 985, June 28, 1787. He further said, I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?
Assuming you mean John Adams, I must ask if he had been a Deist, why did he proclaim:“The idea of infidelity of the Scriptures or the divine origin of Christianity cannot be treated with too much resentment or too much horror. The man who can think of it with patience is a traitor in his heart and ought to be execrated as one who adds the deepest hypocrisy to the blackest treason.”?--- Papers of John Adams, Vol. 6, page 348, to James Warren, August 4, 1778

Madison, while not overly religious, did believe in the Bible and in the necessity of the Christian religion for running our country.

Note: My post may show up again because I reposted it due tho the slowness of this one appearing. In the second post, I included the real title of the so-called Jefferson Bible: it was called "The Life and Morals of Jesus" and was not a revision of the Bible by Jefferson but simply passages he selected to make it easy for the Indians, for whom he wrote it, to understand.

<quoted text>Until you have watched Muslim men take food from their wives and children so they can be full (that’s right you have to separate them or the kids and wife starve) you can’t understand how screwed up this religion of hate is in the real world. Until you have seen Muslims deliberately mutilate children so they can be better beggars you can’t understand how screwed up the disciples of this religion can be. Until you see women and girls slaughtered for daring to learn to read, you can’t understand how putrid and inbred the hatred of these devout Muslims. I know its PC to say it’s only a few and the majority don’t believe in sharia law and the crap that goes along with it. Don’t believe it- just look at the countries these worthless parasites run.
All you have said is true, but most Americans are too naïve to believe Muslims are this way because they feel they have to treat all people equally (except Christians) and allow them religious freedom (Again, except Christians). Muslims for the most part hide their true character in public here so Americans are easily deceived. The Muslim religion is the most barbaric one in existence and is unfit to be allowed in a civilized country, for it will destroy the nation foolish enough to allow it in, as it is doing in this nation now. Already Muslim violence has been taking place in America. Dearborn, Michigan Muslims have displayed their violence in the streets, attacking Christians, and getting by with it because part of the local law enforcement is Muslim. Honor killings have occurred many times yet American liberals insist on upholding the rights of followers of this cancerous religion.

How can you be so brazen as to post such a lie? Instead of running your mouth, spewing false accusations, how about backing up your claims with evidence? Show me proof that any Christian committed mass shootings.

What does the AFA hate? Sin? The destruction of our country due to the moral breakdown that has happened since atheists decided God was no longer relevant and was an obstruction to the evil things they wanted to do?

What is it you hate? Those opposed to evil?

Do you think all archeology in regard to religion--pardon me, the Christian religion--is "made up stuff"? You are ignorant if you can't believe actual proof. Do you suppose Christian archeologists are the only ones who discover evidence regarding Biblical things?
How is it propaganda? Do you know what propaganda is?

Being a Catholic or a Protestant does not mean one is a Christian. Many go to church and belong to church but that does not make them Christians. The definition of a Christian is one who has accepted the salvation offered by Christ, has had his sins forgiven, and has been changed spiritually into a child of God. One who is a Christian does not commit murders but adheres to the teachings of Christ. Lanza may have been a Catholic but that doesn’t mean he was a Christian; but even if he were a Christian, he was mentally disturbed, afflicted with an illness, and needed psychiatric help.
However, Lanza is only one and you claimed thousands of mass murders were committed by Christians, yet you offer nothing but one pathetic example for proof of your claim. If you still insist your claim is true, show me something better that Lanza. You shouldn’t make accusations not based on truth.

There are many people who claim they are Christians but yet they can not tell you anything about the plan of salvation,what the basic teachings are,where their beliefs come from,etc. Just as the new adage says--being in a garage does not make you a car.Christians that are true believers would NEVER think of harming another being.Also,people point to us Christians as if we are suppose to be perfect-not so-just saved, living in an imperfect world with other imperfect people.Our nation was founded on CHRISTIAN BELIEFS,not false religions.Whether you like it or not that's how it is..Another thing, people quote the seperation of church and state when in fact they read into it more than what is stated.They need to research it before they quote from it.

What actual proof? It is from a christian website trying to plug their fairy tales where they don't belong in archeology. Don't you think if scientists actually found 2 cities destroyed in the exact manner as in the bible, it would be front page news everywhere?
