Thomas Jefferson quotes -- sort of an aside.

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]dulcinbradbury)

Often, dominionists/the religious right refer to how our country was founded on the principles of Christianity.

I decided to take a look at some quotes of Thomas Jefferson:

"I do not find in orthodox Christianity one redeeming feature."

"I have recently been examining all the known superstitions of the world, and do not find in our particular superstition (Christianity) one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology."

"It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God."

"Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear."

Would that there were more who would adhere to such views.
