I just love how religious people always use the Founding Fathers as proof America is a Christian nation. It’s just a bad strategy. Ben Franklin, Thomas Paine, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were not religious men. That’s the painful reality American Christians can’t seem to resolve.

    Where in the Bible does it talk about representative republic, or checks and balances or a independent judiciary. Nothing about our government is ‘Christian’ and in a historical context, this new idea of contemporary Christendom would confuses the shit out of 18th century Americans.

    I just love Hitchens. Even though he’s always drunk, he makes more sense than anyone else.
