Many of those quotes are repulsive to many of those who have taken over the American left in recent years. The new party line these days is that the Founders were a mix of deists and atheists with not a kind word for Christianity.
I know... The left HATE our Founding Fathers. They would have had them all shot. The 5000 Year Leap will put to rest any doubt that our founders were NOT just deist. The Left loves to throw that word around. Dont forget also separation of church and state
