i didnt call you a hypocrite...

Thomas Jefferson, was a Deist, not a Christian.
Well, i figured he wasnt.. he rewrote the bible, taking out and adding what he wanted. Its not used by anyone, i think its in a museam.

Then he was wrong. Americans should select and prefer the best candidates for the job as their rulers. Religion should not be a factor. Ones status as a Christian cannot be any indicator of his qualifications, as history has shown Christians to be just as capable of gross error and wrongdoing as any non-christian.

You can't simply quote someone who happened to be old and speak long ago and end it there. George Washington and John Jay have just as much the capability to be wrong as you and I.
