    with.  My preference would be for everyones' eyes to suddenly open, with a realization that they've all been living their lives based on a myth - a very silly myth, no less.  But it's not gonna' happen, so I have to be satisfied with just trying to avoid having their myths imposed on my life.

      echos churchgoers who prefer that everyone should embrace their faith. It's the same intolerance for the beliefs of others.

      And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerve in the brain of Jupiter. But may we hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this most venerated reformer of human errors.

        Seems like he was one of the "Founding Fathers" that the beckian hordes like to yap about- I suppose they don't bother to read his actual writings when they claim that the USA was founded as a "christian" nation.
