If the Bible Was Good Enough For Jefferson… why not the NEA?

While Thomas Jefferson was Chairman of the School Board in Washington, D.C. he authorized the Bible and Isaac Watt’s Hymnal as the principal books to teach reading.

He said, “The Christian religion, when divested of the rags in which the clergy have enveloped it, and brought to the original purity and simplicity of its benevolent institution, is a religion of all others, most friendly to liberty, science, and the freest expression of the human mind.”

He continued to say, “I consider the doctrines of Jesus as delivered by himself to contain the outlines of the sublimest systems of morality that has ever been taught . . .”

So here is a man who is not only one of our founding fathers, but someone who has evolved into a hero of the left. For what reason? Because historians have refused to acknowledge his faith in God or his belief in Christ.

When given the opportunity to assign books to kids, he had volumes of great atheists to choose from . . . yet he chose the Bible.

Now, how can ardent liberal supporters today, do any less. We certainly wouldn’t want to accuse them of intellectual hypocrisy.
