Also: “Lighthouses are more helpful than churches” - Benjamin Franklin
“Of all the systems of religion that ever were invented, there is none more derogatory to the Almighty, more unedifying to man, more repugnant to reason, and more contradictory in itself than this thing called Christianity. Too absurd for belief, too impossible to convince, and too inconsistent for practice, it renders the heart torpid, or produces only atheists and fanatics.” - Thomas Paine, 1795
“An alliance or coalition between Government and religion cannot be too carefully guarded against.” - James Madison, 1822
THANK YOU. I hate hearing people say “This nation was founded on Christian values! We need to keep “Under God” in the pledge, just the way it was originally!”
It’s fun to tell them that “Under God” was added in 1954.
This is exactly what I’d love to broadcast out at my school. Even the teachers are uneducated here.
