Actually most if NOT ALL of the Founding Fathers WERE NOT Christians. This is a myth that is being spread by the Christian Right in their effort to REWRITE HISTORY. The founding fathers were Deist. That is they believed in "A GOD", but not the Christian God. Rather they felt that a sort of Natural God created all this and then left us in charge of it. Some of them didn't even believe Jesus was the Son of God! Hard to believe, but true. Most of these people were influenced by the AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT that started in Europe. This thinking relied more on science, logic, and reasonable thought. Thomas Paine didn't believe in his book "AGE OF REASON". --Lucifer ];-)
