More Pondering Quotes from Stevie Joe

Now, I am a religious man. Me and JC are tight. We talk all the time. However, some folks tend to get a bug up their rears about mixing government and religion. These two quotes from a couple of Founders might clarify the matter a bit:

"The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg."

--Thomas Jefferson, 1874

"The United States is in no sense founded upon the Christian Doctrine."

--George Washington
