Founding Fathers by Balddog4 Founding Fathers by Balddog4
I've heard people say that the Founding Fathers were not Christians. I just want to say that statement is false and incorrect. The Founding Fathers were God fearing men. They worship God and went to church, they study the Bible. In fact I believe that both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S Constitution were inspired from God. And that is why I consider the Founding Fathers Christians.

Every time I see a picture of all of them, I'm like: "Guys! I can't tell any of you apart! Get haircuts!"

"no matter what you say they are..." that phrase alone should show you that you are trying to construct a reality as you wish it to be.

Except for Benjamin Franklin and Jefferson. Franklin was a deist while Jefferson was a heretic who believed that Jesus was not the Son of God. Now I'm not trying to contradict you. I'm with you and I support you.

Technically many were deist, others were atheist.

They were Deists. They believe in a God who created the universe and dosen't intervene with it and left it to govern on its own perfectly with Laws Of Nature

It did say in the D.O.I. 

"Laws of Nature and of Nature's God"
"Supreme Judge of the world"

They don't believe in the bible and there are quotes by them as evidence they don't believe in Christianity. Including George Washington, Thomas Paine (In his book Age of Reason), Ben Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and lots more.

Actually, they were mostly atheists or secular theists. America needs to ge back to its atheist roots.

The Constitution had borrowed ideas from ancient Rome, Greece, Judeo Christian belief the Magna Carta and houses of parliament in Britain, the Mayflower compact and New England's "town meeting" style of self rule.

uh...actually the declaration was inspired by the thinkers of the Enlightenment age such as Montesquieu, Paine, and Locke, among many others. It was a confabulation of humanist philosophy; and while the founding fathers were, many of them, monotheists, some were merely theists and some agnostic. The number is still subject to historical speculation, debate and research: but, one thing is clear, they were adamant that their religions and the government should be separate.

""During almost fifteen centuries the legal establishment of Christianity has been upon trial. What has been its fruits?
More or less, in all places, pride and indolence in the clergy;ignorance and servility in the laity, in both, superstition,
bigotry, and persecution." James Madison

“Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burned, tortured, fined, and imprisoned, yet we have not advanced one inch toward uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half of the world fools and the other half hypocrites.” Thomas Jefferson
