Our Forefathers Loved That Ole Time Religion?

George Washington: our first atheist pinko libtard socialist?

Clearly they didn't not. So when Michele Bachmann or Ted Cruz say different, don't believe them. Daily Kos put out a neat compendium of our forefathers' feelings religion-wise:
"Christian establishments tend to great ignorance and corruption, all of which facilitate the execution of mischievous projects."
- James Madison, letter to William Bradford, Jr. (1774)
"There is nothing which can better deserve our patronage than the promotion of science and literature. Knowledge is in every country the surest basis of public happiness."
- George Washington, address to Congress (1790)
How 'bout them apples, ye olde constitutionalists? Read the whole list to get the real gist.
