Humanists want a 'Jefferson edited Bible'??
(And USAmericans wonder why people think they're all mad!:-)

Beyond historical interest, does the Bible matter any more? Well...

"The chapter, titled "Congress and the Bible," debunks all the myths and lies regarding the printing, financing, distribution, or recommending of Bibles by our early congresses, most of which are variations of the same three stories -- two involving the Continental Congress, and one an act signed by James Madison. The chapter also includes some related lies that have, quite disturbingly, made it into the opinions of Supreme Court justices in a few First Amendment cases."
