    President Washington was leading ignorant & and superstitious people that were only motovated by equally stupid religions, to keep themsves in check and while the enemy was 1000s of miles away over seas!

    He didn’t approve of the Bible (for the Bible reduces peplle to sheep and takes away freedoms with its sins) but used it as a tool, a necessary evil that could be picked and chosen from — when the people he led couldn’t even read or wtite themselves.

    Later President Jefferson hacked the Bible up to eliminate all the fairytale magic, servitude to Isreal BS and other evils of the Old Testament in his own version, because he knew the danger.

    America was founded by freethinking Deists that were free as a reault. Free the mind, free the body.

    The Bible and the religions of it do not allow freethinking. They tell people what to think in mass(es)(brainwashing). And by doing so, they have created a nation of ‘sheeple’ they themselves later have assisted & allowed our government to become corrupt and turned into our own enemy — that works to take away our rights and freedoms because of the Bible with that and due to blackmail (as ashamed ‘simners’) prone to such pressure as ‘everyone’ took to it and its bait — Jesus/a good ‘fatherly God’ — so that the lucifarians (Zohar followers of the Kaballah and ‘synagogue of satan’ types involved) and others — Zionists — out for world domination (as is clearly spelled out in their secret side of it — Oral Torah/Talmud).

    I dont know if President Washington knew of the Talmud much kess the Kabbalah and how evil that was — being really just fictional of what became Israel — or that the fomer criminal empire of Kharzaria was even the source of it, he just thought it was impossible to govern people with no edumacation, and didn’t know nothing either!

    Times have changed, ‘religions’ being mafe up (faith, not fact) has no lasting place in government (separation of church and state). And the Bible itself is just plain evil — being what it really is — fictional propaganda made for the purpose to decieve and enslave all to the “Chosen People” of Israel as their “animals” — to make them “Chief of nations” (the Bible). That is the only reasonable evaluation if you read it!

    Mark,

    Your spelling is as bad as your logic. You should save your rants for a different webpage.

    I have to agree with Jim. Please don’t comment Mark if you plan on sounding intelligent, it doesn’t help your case.
