Founded on Christian Principles

Hello Jim. Thank you for writing out so well what I wish I could have expressed more than once to visitors of my blog that needed so bad to understand this. Hugs

If the USA was founded on Christian principles, why did they form a republic and not a monarchy?

Of our Founding Fathers who were deists; John Adams, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Ethan Allen and Thomas Paine. Paine, perhaps, was the most radical of all: “Of all the systems of religion that ever were invented, there is no more derogatory to the Almighty, more unedifying to man, more repugnant to reason, and more contradictory in itself than this thing called Christianity—Thomas Paine “The Age of Reason.”

Furthermore, Jefferson in his autobiography explained why an amendment to the preamble of the Constitution that would have included “Jesus Christ” – so that the preamble would have read “A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion” – was rejected. Jefferson said, “they (the creators of the Constitution) meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection…

  • Thank you Scottie. It is no wonder they are always at odds with the republic. The most passionate Christian soldiers marching as to war, praying for the king of kings to return and rule the righteous. Of course, you and I will never be privy to that blessing, thank god. But if they get their way? Watch out!

    • Hello Jim. I feel that the church leaders have had a huge push to get a doctored history in to young people so that when they are adults they are true believers pushing it on their children. They started in church, moved to home school kids, and now trying to force doctored history and false historians in to public schools. We really need to fix that situation. I have found that the ones that come to my blog really think they have the true history and that the anti-god atheist are lying to about history to destroy the church. Hugs

    • Hello Rebecca. Good afternoon. I tried to research this topic for you, I was curious also. It is a good question. I couldn’t find anything definite and semi short. But everything I read related to the subject was so nasty and ugly I decided against sharing it. Hateful comes to mind. One article even tried to claim the 1619 was lies and others claimed slavery was not only not bad but helpful to the blacks. Here is one of the least nasty ones and yet it still doesn’t answer your question. https://www.christianpost.com/voices/1619-vs-1776.html . If you get an answer please let me know, thanks. Hugs

  • “In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own”
    Thomas Jefferson

    “The constitutional freedom of religion is the most inalienable and sacred of all human rights.”
    Thomas Jefferson

    “The end of democracy and the defeat of the American Revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed incorporation.”
    Thomas Jefferson

    The Christian community has been trying to re-write our history for years and has become much more invigorated in the past decade. Rebecca wondered about the 1776 Project. None of those so-called historians were really historians but were all from the clergy.

    I cannot understand why Christians find it so necessary to continue to promote their lies when it is so easy to refute them. It seems that they have no concern for their credibility or the damage they do to the standing of the religion.

    “Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of an established religion tends to make the clergy unresponsive to their own people, and leads to corruption within religion itself. Erecting the ‘wall of separation between church and state,’ therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society.”
    Thomas Jefferson

    If Christianity, or any other religion, were founded on any truth or facts they would not need an outside authority to be underwritten by a government.

    • Hello Cagjr. I did not read either the 1619 nor the 1776 essays / curriculums. I only know them from the news reports. But when Rebecca asked the question I tired to look up the answer. Wow, what I got back from the Christian side was nasty and wildly inaccurate from what I understand to be the real history. I gave up trying to wade through them. So if you can spread some light on Rebecca’s question I would love to read it. Thanks. Hugs
