We've *never* had a non-christian president
uhhhh.... do your research. i'll just point out 3 of our non-christian presidents (the last one, could go either way, but he was most certainly not an orthodox christian of any sort, and the first 2 are most certainly not christian):
3 Abraham Lincoln quotes (the 2nd one is quite blatant in saying that, yes, we have had a non-christian president):
"My earlier views at the unsoundness of the Christian scheme of salvation and the human origin of the scriptures, have become clearer and stronger with advancing years and I see no reason for thinking I shall ever change them."
"The Bible is not my Book and Christianity is not my religion. I could never give assent to the long complicated statements of Christian dogma."
"I see a very dark cloud on America's horizon, and that cloud is coming from Rome."
8 Thomas Jefferson quotes:
"Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on man."
"Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear."
"He is less remote from the truth who believes nothing, than he who believes what is wrong."
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."
"There is not a truth existing which I fear... or would wish unknown to the whole world."
"It is error alone that needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself."
"I do not find in orthodox Christianity one redeeming feature."
"Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law"
3 John Adams quotes:
"I almost shudder at the thought of alluding to the most fatal example of the abuses of grief which the history of mankind has preserved--the Cross. Consider what calamities that engine of grief has produced!" "This would be the best of all possible worlds if there were no [organized] religion in it"
"As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion..."
"What havoc has been made of books through every century of the Christian era? Where are fifty gospels, condemned as spurious by the bull of Pope Gelasius? Where are the forty wagon-loads of Hebrew manuscripts burned in France, by order of another pope, because suspected of heresy? Remember the 'index expurgatorius', the inquisition, the stake, the axe, the halter and the guillotine."
