Do recall Rev. Witherspoon used the term"providence "quite
frequently are we to suppose that by use of the term "providence" one is automatically a deist? Sounds rather gay to me.

It may well prove to be like that Treaty with Tripoli the Infidels and Atheists love to cite as authoratative but is proven fraud

ARTICLE 11 Of the Treaty:

As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion, as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen, - and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.
Treaty signed at Tripoli November 4, 1796, and at Algiers January 3, 1797
Senate advice and consent to ratification June 7, 1797
Ratified by the President of the United States June 10, 1797
Entered into force June 10, 1797

Do recall Rev. Witherspoon used the term"providence "quite frequently are we to suppose that by use of the term "providence" one is automatically a deist? Sounds rather gay to me.

ROFL!
Was Rev. Witherspoon gay?
Providence just means good luck. When a Christian sees a miracle, a Deist sees a stroke of good luck.
The gay thing won't work with a Deist. It's a live and let live belief and Deists really don't care what you do with your crotch or your appetite.
