Is it not a species of blasphemy to call the New Testament revealed religion, when we see in it such contradictions and absurdities.
It is an affront to treat falsehood with complaisance.
It is error only, and not truth, that shrinks from inquiry.
It is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving, it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe.
It is not a field of a few acres of ground, but a cause, that we are defending, and whether we defeat the enemy in one battle, or by degrees, the consequences will be the same.
It is not a God, just and good, but a devil, under the name of God, that the Bible describes.
It is the direction and not the magnitude which is to be taken into consideration.
Lead, follow, or get out of the way.
Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice.
My country is the world, and my religion is to do good.
My mind is my own church.
Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst.

And finally, New Rule, now that they've finished reading the Constitution out loud, the teabaggers must call out that group of elitist liberals whose values are so antithetical to theirs. I'm talking, of course, about the Founding Fathers, who the teabaggers believe are just like them, but aren't. One is a group of exclusively white men who live in a bygone century, have bad teeth, and think of blacks as 3/5s of a person. And the other are the Founding Fathers!
Now I want you teabaggers out there to understand one thing. While you idolize the Founding Fathers and dress up like them and smell like them, I think it's pretty clear that the Founding Fathers would've hated your guts. And what's more, you would've hated them! They were everything you despise. They studied science, read Plato, hung out in Paris, and thought the Bible was mostly bullshit. And yet, here is a popular painting in wingnut America.
Yes, that's Jesus with the Founding Fathers behind him, presenting the Constitution to America. Either that, or it's a settlement offer for that boy after he sued the rectory.
Super-religious guy Glenn Beck likes to play dress-up as Thomas Paine. Thomas Paine, an atheist who said churches were "human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind". John Adams said, "this would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religion in it".* Which is not to say the Founders didn't have a moral code. Of course they did. They just didn't get it from the Bible. Well, except for the part about it's cool to own slaves. It's in there, folks, I didn't make it up.
The Founders disagreed amongst themselves about that, and most issues. But the one thing they never argued about was that political power must stay in the hands of the smartest people, and out of the hands of the dumbest loudmouths slowing down the checkout line at Home Depot.
And yet, Sarah Palin once said of Obama, "we need a Commander-in-Chief, not a professor of law standing at a lectern". How gay is that! Well, I hate to break it to you, but:
Thomas Jefferson, lawyer.
Alexander Hamilton, Constitutional lawyer.
James Madison, lawyer.
John Adams, Constitutional lawyer.
They were not the common man of their day. Ben Franklin studied scientific phenomena like lightning and the aurora borealis, and were he alive today, he could probably explain to Bill O'Reilly why the tides go in and out.
James Madison was fluent in Greek and Latin, and could translate Virgil and Cicero. John Boehner can't translate Fareed Zakaria. And Thomas Jefferson was an astronomer and a physicist who founded the University of Virginia, played the violin, and spoke six languages. Or as Palin would say, "all of them".
