Like many FundyNutZ, Ms. Griffin tries to invent history. Thomas Jefferson was not a Christian. At best he was a Deist as were many of his contemporaries. There was no need for Jefferson to believe in myths as reality and superstitions as historical.
Jefferson even created his own Bible removing all the so called "miracles" and other hogwash in an attempt to only present a morality that doesn't rely on fiction as fact.
"Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch toward uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one-half the world fools and the other half hypocrites. To support roguery and error all over the earth."
-- Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, 1781-82
"I am for freedom of religion, & against all maneuvres to bring about a legal ascendancy of one sect over another."
-- Thomas Jefferson, letter to Elbridge Gerry, 1799
"[If] the nature of ... government [were] a subordination of the civil to the ecclesiastical power, I [would] consider it as desperate for long years to come. Their steady habits [will] exclude the advances of information, and they [will] seem exactly where they [have always been]. And there [the] clergy will always keep them if they can. [They] will follow the bark of liberty only by the help of a tow-rope."
-- Thomas Jefferson, to Pierrepont, Edwards, July 1801
"His [Calvin's] religion was demonism. If ever a man worshiped a false god, he did. The being described in his five points is ... a demon of malignant spirit. It would be more pardonable to believe in no God at all, than to blaspheme him by the atrocious, attributes of Calvin."
-- Thomas Jefferson, Works, 1829 edition
Jefferson was for freedom of religion as am I. He was equally for freedom from religion.
Ms. Griffin is simply another religious fundamentalist seeking theocracy in the guise of liberty and would be first in line to become a Grand Inquisitor. Anyone getting their history and science out of the Bible shows ignorance and fear.
This is the reason to keep such malarkey out of public schools and government.
But thanks Ms. Griffin for the laughs. You FundyNutZ never fail to amuse.
This is undoubtedly one of the most nonsensical pieces of FundyNutz writing I've read. Christian apologetics at its finest and funniest.
This is the reason that we keep such craziness out of public schools and leave such drivel to the catacombs of superstition and ignorance.
Welcome to the nutso conservative Tea Party group in Chattanooga as represented by Timbo.
I can't wait for Timbo to run for office as he makes Basil Marceaux appear as a Rhodes Scholar next to Tiny Tim.
Do stay tuned as Timmy attempts to scribble out more nonsense while blaming the dog for eating his spell-checker.
"What I have tried to tell you is that if the girls had said no, they would have been safe."
"Gosh almighty, all I said was the girl could have avoided this if she had shown better judgement..."
Pure idiocy. But I guess if Timbo's wife or daughter is raped he'll blame them as well.
"By the way, David Cook is the worst writer I have ever seen in print."
Have you read what you write? The prize goes to you without a close second.
"You and Cook fail miserably as far as that goes...but you (sp) spelling is ok.."
Again, you can't even get a simple word like "your" right. Perhaps you should get a 2nd-grade student to edit your writing.
"As far as being stupid, I don't drink at all."
Then congratulations on being naturally illiterate.
Also interesting is that WGOW got rid of you in April 2008. http://www.chattanoogan.com/2008/4/24/126526/Local-Political-Activist-Tim-Price-Gets.aspx
You did so much in getting Randy Fairbanks elected over Rhoda Thurman. Randy owes you one.
Keep up the good work.
"Literacy: the ability to read and write." Correct and again you've fail the test.
How many times can you use the "spell check failed" excuse?
Everytime you post about David Cook he drinks your milkshake.
Lay off the booze, Timbo. It's not good for you, your high-blood pressure, and makes you seem stupider than you are.
Robert T. Nash was right about you after all.
Timbo wrote: "First these girls asked two drunk football players to their apartment at 3 am in the morning. What did they think was going to happen? Pinnacle.. (sp)"
Every time Timbo posts, the English language laughs at him.
Kids, the lesson today is literacy. Be like David, not like Timbo.
"In love with a serial killer"
This sums up the crazed religious fundamentalist "love" for Jehovah, Yahweh, and Allah.
Little difference between Manson and fundamentalist gods.
I wonder if those dead veteran's families and those veterans who gave their body parts and minds in the Iraq and Afghan wars for corporations and top-brass military mercenaries share your sentiment.
I do suggest that the old flag be removed and discarded and replaced by a Corporations of America flag. Instead of stripes and stars, replace it with a thousand-dollar bill and the words "When the Rich Want War, It's the Poor that Die."
FundyNutz David Fowler, described as the state's biggest busybody, is simply another in a long line of Tennessee's Christian Taliban.
An excellent article has nailed this stone-age cretin.
