Anyway, let me edit my previous statement: a good portion of the founding fathers were theists or deists. Some of them did believe in a supreme being but doubted the existence of a "loving father" or whatever you would like to establish as the feel-good moniker for him. It was EXTREMELY risky to be anything but Christian in the days of the constitution.

The founding fathers would surely be disappointed to see where we have come today, where churches battle for people, and, ultimately, the tithes that come with them.

Well, I'm not a God-hater, I just refuse to believe something that has never been proven. So in effect, all I'm doing is "not taking a giant leap of faith." Right? Hah.

No, I take that back, I do hate God. I hate him because of what this fictional being has turned our world into. Violence, greed, hate, and utter irrationality amongst billions.

It was Thomas Jefferson who said, "Question with boldness even the existence of God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear."

and...

"Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on man."

That is an incredibly biased statement based upon a subjective interpretation of the state of the country relative to your personal belief system.
