Need help with Founding Fathers and their religious beliefs.
I know that most were Deists, but could anyone direct me to a site that backs up these claims? Or, further define what they believed through direct quotes or writings?

Ah, gotcha.
I found this pretty cool.. it's also linked within that other link under the part about Ben Franklin.
It's quite involved and informative. Smile

Thanks, Kim.

On that second one - click on the Six Historic Americans link. It looks to be quite scholarly, very informative, wide ranging, and includes arguments on why Thomas Paine is somewhat obscured in our popular history.

Paine's continued persecution and historical bad rep may have been avoidable... but our founding brothers believed in freedom. And that includes freedom to let religious lunatics spread their misinformation. Shy
