Were the American Founding Fathers Christians?

by Michael Smith (Veshengro)

Sure they were, I hear now many say. But the truth, in short, is a different one and they were not.

founding-fathers Most Americans in school, and also and especially homeschooled children, are being taught that the Founding Fathers of 1776 revolution and the establishment of the United States of America were devout Bible-believing Christians.

However, nothing could be further from the truth than such claims.

With one or two exceptions all of the Founding Fathers were deists and not, repeat not, Christians. In addition to that almost all, if not indeed all, were involved in the highest echelon and ranks of the Freemason Craft.

We must get away from the notion that the United States of America were founded on Christian principles and as a Christian country. This is not even remotely true.

Quoting, as it is often done, to substantiate this claim as to the US being a Christian country, the “under God” part of the Pledge of Allegiance does not hold any water whatsoever either in this department. Those two words were only added to the Pledge in the late first half of the 20th century and they were not part of the original version. There the sentence goes “one nation, with liberty and justice for all”.

For more than fifty years and probably a great deal longer the American people have been sold a lie by right-wing Christian groups and sections of the GOP and not just as far as the issue of the Founding Fathers being Christians and the country having been founded as a Christian nation.

Wake up, America! Wake up Americans!
