Thomas Jefferson Award

Well congrats Mike, but Thomas Jefferson believed in religion and government mixing, contrary to MRFF’s beliefs. Thomas Jefferson requested a Presbyterian minister to come and lead a church that met in the halls of Congress every Sunday, does not sound like someone who believed in the separation of church and state that liberals have misinterpreted to be.

Well thanks for the congrats, (name withheld), I’m deeply touched.  Of course, the real reason for your email is to promote your misconception of Thomas Jefferson’s legacy.  Your skewed notion is misconceived because it is predicated on the incorrect assumption that there are only two possible options —

All-religion-all-the-time (what you believe, so long as the religion in question is your own particular beliefs)
         OR
No-religion-anytime (what you wrongly presume the MRFF to believe)
Luckily, there are lots and lots of level-headed Americans (including those of us who support the MRFF) who reject that silly false dichotomy and strive for a vision of America which acknowledges the plurality of religious belief that exists among our citizenry… and who will always stand opposed to the efforts of extremists such as yourself to deny equal rights, protection, and respect for people who don’t happen to agree with you.
If you ever stop by the house, I’ll let you touch my Thomas Jefferson.
Peace, MC

    “Thomas Jefferson requested a Presbyterian minister to come and lead a church that met in the halls of Congress every Sunday” because the city of Washington was in the early stages of being built, so there were few other places big enough for large numbers of people to gather. In that situation, temporary use of government facilities for religious purposes would be a reasonable policy.
