SORT BY Relevancy
Jefferson gives his assessment of the author of and book of Revelation in the Bible:“It is between fifty and sixty years since I read it and I then considered it as merely the ravings of a maniac no more worthy nor capable of explanation than the incoherences of our own nightly dreams.” (Thomas Jefferson, Letter to General Alexander Smyth, January 17, 1825)Jefferson put together his own bible called the “Jefferson Bible” in which he took out certain passages of scripture while throwing out the rest considering it as dung:“The greatest of all the Reformers of the depraved religion of his own country, was Jesus of Nazareth… Abstracting what is really his from the rubbish in which it is buried, easily distinguished by its luster from the dross of his biographers, and as separable as the diamond from the dung hill.” (Thomas Jefferson, Letter to William Short, October 31, 1819)Jefferson blasphemes account of Ten Commandments in the Bible:“where get we the ten commandments? The book indeed gives them to us verbatim, but where did it get them? For itself tells us they were written by the finger of God on tables of stone, which were destroyed by Moses. But the whole history of these books is so defective and doubtful, that it seems vain to attempt minute inquiry into it and such tricks have been played with their text, and with the text of other books relating to them, that we have a right from that cause to entertain much doubt what parts of them are genuine.” (Thomas Jefferson, Letter to John Adams, January 24, 1814)

Some members of America’s religious right would have us believe that Thomas Jefferson was a Bible-thumping evangelist on a mission to create religious schools, to convert Native Americans into Christians, and to establish a Christian nation. They argue that Jefferson’s famous “wall of separation” letter written in 1802 to the Danbury Baptist Association was simply to stop government from encroaching on religion and had nothing to do with a Christian-run government.
Are the Christian nationalists right?
Jayson, the Deputy Director of the World Union of Deists, will explore what Jefferson really said about religion. For instance, Jefferson did not believe in “the Holy Trinity” and considered parts of the Bible to be nonsense. Jefferson was theologically a Deist who drew upon Christian morals, we will learn.
Deism celebrates reason, not religion. Deists believe in God based on reason, but do not subscribe to “revealed” religions. Join Jayson as he tells us what Deism is really about – and why Jefferson was a Deist, not an evangelical Christian.

This episode will discuss the murder of Eric Garner for voicing his concern about being targeted by police and for an alleged prior possession of untaxed cigarettes, which led to a death sentence. We will discuss the ongoing problems associated with untrained police officers who encounter unarmed people and police citizen encounters in America. Garner wanted to know why he was being harassed and he suffered a life sentence for merely questioning police officers. A side bar, in Georgia a bomb was thrown threw a window of a home occupied by a family to enforce a search warrant. A child suffered severe injuries!
