Did the founding fathers believe that Christian piety and morality was superior to Muslim or Jewish or Hindu piety and morality?
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 religion...read his book "AGE OF REASON". --Lucifer ];-)
What is the difference between morality of a substance and twice the morality of the same substance?
Yes. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) believes in apostasy, or the concept of 'falling away' from true doctrine. They believe that shortly after the death of the Apostles, the Christian world fell into a state of apostasy. This caused the need for the true Christian Church to be restored to the earth - which they believe was accomplished in the founding of their Church in 1830 through Joseph Smith…
You hold these Truths to be self-evident to an absolute tyranny over these states what beliefs did the founding fathers believe they had?
Americas Founding fathers, held as a self-evident truth; All men were bourn with equal rites. But you have to understand, "All men" to them = Caucasian Judaic Christian men; all others were women, or indiginous peoples, who had no rights anywhere in the world, The Judaic Christian religion tells that; Check Leveticus, the laws Moses claimed came from a god, that the scriptures tell, They never ever knew!
It is an interesting question. You might say that you are nominally Christian by virtue of your upbringing, but you are not a Christian in the more formal sense of devotion to Christ. ANSWER 2: Someone who doesn't believe in God is called an atheist. No one can be a Christian and an atheist at the same time. To be a Christian, one has to believe in Jesus as the Son of God.
