    I don't have too. The founder's quotes speak for themselves.

    But that's not what you originally asked. You asked why the Vatican did nothing to STOP THE GENOCIDE. Of course they could have "struggled" by issuing public condemnations, but how would this have stopped the holocaust? I'm sure that if the Pope had been a bit more vebal, Hitler would have just shut down all the camps and sent all the remaining Jews back home with full restitution.

    The pope doesn't speak for protestants just to let you know. And I guess me and the pope disagree.
    So your saying christian scientist don't believe that god created the world..... wuhhh...

    And we teach evolution in school which has how many people believing it?

    I spent 8 years going to college half time at night, never heard any left wing propaganda. Must be a daylight professor only thing...

We know that's not the case. There were presidents that werent. Like jefferson and lincoln.
    Just curious....are you an atheist?

    Hey rookie, for every so-called "anti-Christian" quote you dig up from the Founders, I'll produce two or three that shows that the majority espoused Christianity, its doctrines, and principles. I've done it before in another thread, and I don't really feel like staying up all night rehashing it with you.

    Some advice. Stop relying on Google and talking points from your biased professors and go out and actually read some biographies and primary source documents. Try a real historiographic approach to this question. Ask your professors if they actually even know what a "historiography" is.

    The truth is out there..........you simply need to take off your blinders occasionally.

    You're just showing evidence that our children are being taught false theories like creationism and intelligent design. I was a bio major in college and i knew a lot of folks that attend church but didnt believe in creationism. And i hope that any that doesn't believe in evolution doesn't go into medicine. You need to believe in evolution to be a doctor.
