Quotes for Americans from the Founding Fathers

America was not founded as a christian nation. I've gathered some quotes on my regular blog from several of the Founding Fathers to help fellow Americans refute that false argument.
Selected quotes are from:
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) played a major role in the American Revolution. Atheist.
John Adams (1735-1826) The second President of the United States.
Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) The third President of the United States. Deist.
James Madison (1751-1836) The fourth President of the United States.
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) The sixteenth president of the United States.

You're welcome, Sage. I learned a lot from putting the quotes together so it's all good.

Thanks for putting this together! Nothing frustrates me more than those who try to argue that our country is a Christian nation, and try to back it up with the founding fathers.
