I mention all this because I want to point out something. OUR FOUNDING FATHERS WERE NOT DEISTS! There is an effort today by the liberal left to remove God not only from government but from the history of government.
Did You Know...
In the first inaugural address which was given by George Washington, the President repeatedly thanked God and mentioned how our fledgling nation was to look toward Divine Providence for guidance.
Claiming separation of church and state, the government removed all references to God from the speech before putting it in modern history textbooks.
And now there are people coming out of the woodwork proclaiming that the framers of the constitution were Deists and not Christians. The liberals tried to deny that God was important to our founding fathers but so much of their writing acknowledges God and specifically Jesus Christ for the birth of our nation that the liberals had to adopt another tactic. Merriam-Webster says;
de ism (often capitalized)
: a movement or system of thought advocating natural religion, emphasizing morality, and in the 18th century denying the interference of the Creator with the laws of the universe
So now they admit that Geoprge Washington and Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin all believed in God but they really didn't think that God cares about the actions and activities of individuals or nations. What a load of crap. It is amazing how the liberals overlook the first prayer said in Congress which asked God to guide the decisions of that body of government. God was real to our founding fathers. Many of them knew and professed Jesus as their personal Saviour. Don't let the left obscure that fact with cries of deism.
