Thomas Jefferson rewrote the Bible

The Jefferson Bible:
"The Jefferson Bible, or The Life And Morals of Jesus of Nazareth Extracted textually from the Gospels as it is formally titled, was an attempt by Thomas Jefferson to glean the teachings of Jesus from the Christian Gospels. A deist, Jefferson wished to extract the doctrine of Jesus by removing sections of the New Testament containing supernatural aspects as well as perceived misinterpretations he believed had been added by the Four Evangelists."
Amen to that?

  1. AMEN!
    It seems to me that the message has always been obscured by the 'powers'.

    Funny, comic books face the same issue.

    btw, you know my brother.
