Of the forty-two delegates who attended most of the meetings, thirty-nine actually signed the Constitution. Edmund Randolph and George Mason of Virginia and Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts refused to sign due in part to the lack of a bill of rights.

More than a few of the founding fathers were masons or woodmen of the world. Experts believe that up to 15 of the signers of the Constitution were masons.

The founding fathers believed in liberty for all, yet many "owned" slaves.

He was one of the founding fathers, meaning he was one of the many who founded the united states.

The founding fathers of the United States did not abolish slavery right away because it was something that they found useful. There were many slaves working in state houses in Pennsylvania at the time the Declaration of Independence was signed. Many families had slaves to do the cooking and cleaning in the northern states.

I would think it is mostly the other way around, except maybe historical revisionism, which both sides are guilty of. The intent of the founding Fathers was a secular republic as the Constitution makes clear to anyone not deluded. We have no religious foundations to this country and many, if not most of the founding Fathers were deists and far from religious.

Zero. Some of the founding fathers may have studied Hebrew in college, but none were able to speak it.

They didn't create Freemasonry. However, many of the founding fathers were Freemasons. Freemasons date well before the United States.

Many of the Founding Fathers had slaves and knew that way of life. Change is always hard to follow through when it affects you personally.

The US Constitution does not specifically address the environment in so many words. All laws which have been promulgated to protect the environment have been extrapolated from the (supposed) meanings the founding fathers included in the wording of the Constitution, or as it is currently amended.

They are Founding Fathers because they played an important part in the founding of the Unites States. However, they are not the only people considered Founding Fathers. There were a great many and any attempt to make a list would surely miss some.
