Thomas Jefferson wasn't a Christian. Sounds like it, too.

Doug Spaulding:
That Newsweek piece...I've read different takes on Lincoln. I've read he was a most religious man. Perhaps he got a whle lot of religion during the turnign tides of the Civil War.

The Newsweek piece you linked, is written by the Editor of Newsweek. Believe he is from the Episcopal Church. Like the (Roman) Catholic Church, they are having their issues. This week, I'll be interested in getting a copy of Newsweek. The cover story has to do with the pastor of the church I attend, debating one of the foremost atheists in America. Should be out on the stands by now.

"Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war..."

"They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore."

I pray for the day.

Reminds me of the old folk tune "Down By The Riverside".

good link:

(Remember Roger McGuinn of 'The Byrds'?)

Although, I can never hear that song without thinking of Allan Sherman's version, "Don't Buy The Liverwurst"!
