Quote for the day...

I have recently been examining all the known superstitions of the world, and do not find in our particular superstition (Christianity) one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology.

- Thomas Jefferson

As critical of Christianity as Jefferson was, Madison was worse. Both saw religion as indistinguishable from any other kind of tyranny, yet every year we have to go through a barrage of angry propaganda about how Christianity is the basis of our constitution and all non-believers should get out now.

I read that 6 States still require belief in God and Heaven for public office. What a sick joke we've made of the Bill of Rights.

How can that be?

The federal constitution prohibits that practice -- and it must surly apply to the states.
