Interesting that America has a "religious history," yet a lot of the founding fathers were simply theists, not followers of any particular religion...

49 of the 55 that attended the 87 convention were Catholic or Protestant. 6 is not a lot.

A handful of the founding (mainly Jefferson and Franklin) were agnostics or deist, but by and large, the founding fathers were protestant.

it shouldn't matter at all but the fact that you almost had to belong to a church in the 1700s in order to be a member of society is held up to mean something entirely else by some very stupid people with an obvious agenda.

Join what, Chuck Norris's second revolution? Hardly. I feel the same way about them that I do about 9-11 conspiracy nuts. Just pointing out that the founding fathers were by and large christian and protestant. Deism was relatively rare. And in some ways, that makes what they did even more spectacular.

Don't get me wrong, there may come a time somewhere in the future in which another revolution is needed, but I don't think that time is going to happen anytime soon. IMO, we have as much or more freedom now than at just about any point in our history. If those freedoms should ever truly be curtailed, then it might be time. But for now, things are still good freedom wise.

Don't mistake successful for good. I've never watched one episode but Walker Texas Ranger was on 9 seasons. The check he receives every month for the syndication rights is probably huge.

It is what it is, the guy is rollin' in dough.
