From Barry Lynn:
Let’s try a thought experiment. Let’s say you had a candidate who was skeptical of some portions of the Bible. Let’s say he took the New Testament and removed the stories of Jesus’ miracles and assertions that he was divine. Let’s say this candidate once wrote a letter to a friend saying that he did not believe in the virgin birth, the immaculate conception, the trinity, original sin and the resurrection. Would you vote for this candidate? If you said no, I regret to inform you that you’ve just rejected Thomas Jefferson.
And the ones who most assuredly would never vote for him are those who dishonestly hold him up as a Christian just like them. Same with John Adams.
