John Adams

Who better to hear it from than one of our own Founding Fathers!

"The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion."

"Children should be educated and instructed in the principals of freedom."

"This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religion in it."

"Power always thinks it has a great soul, and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing Gods service when it is violating all his laws."

"Let the human mind loose. It must be loose. It will be loose. Superstition and dogmatism cannot confine it."

As I understand the Christian religion, it was, and is, a revelation. But how has it happened that millions of fables, tales, legends, have been blended with both Jewish and Christian revelation that have made them the most bloody religion that ever existed?

All of the above quotes are by John Adams.

John Adams became the second president of the United States, after having served as Vice President in President Geo Washington's cabinet. He was a Statesman, Diplomat, and leader of American independence from Great Britain. Born Oct.30th 1735, in Braintree (later called Quincy) Massachusetts. His Vice President was Thomas Jefferson.
