I know my Christian readers are going to be brutally bereaved by this, but I feel it my duty to disabuse them of the notion that America’s founding daddies loved them over all the rest of us.

The truth is, America’s Founding Fathers were not Bible-thumping Christians; they weren’t even Christians at all. They were Deists.

Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, etc. did not worship Jehovah. They did not believe in Jesus. They did not ache for America to be a Christian country. The thought of Christians ruling America did not give them secret joy. [My guess is that the Founding Daddies didn’t even like Christians; a prize to anyone finding a source proving this.]

The … founding fathers of our nation were not Bible-believing Christians; they were deists…. The supreme God of the Deists removed himself entirely from the universe after creating it. [Deists] believed that he assumed no control over it, exerted no influence on natural phenomena, and gave no supernatural revelation to [humans].… Deists did not believe in the virgin birth, divinity, or resurrection of Jesus, the efficacy of prayer, the miracles of the Bible, or even the divine inspiration of the Bible.

“…[F]ounding fathers who espoused Deism were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Ethan Allen, James Madison, and James Monroe.” Go HERE for more.
Also, go to the Library of Congress website and type in “deist” for more info on the founding daddies and their deism.
