The claim that “freedom from religion” was ensured in the Bill of Rights.

They would wave around Jefferson’s off-hand comments to the Danbury Baptists as proof.
The fact that Jefferson did not have a hand in writing the Constitution because his peers largely thought he was a bit of a weirdo by that point was never mentioned. As we always see with paganism, appeals to authority are never rational.

Your Say

When the atheists get too militant, please do remind them that Thomas Jefferson (among other Presidents, Representatives and Senators) attended church services in the Capitol building (starting in 1800). This practice continued until the War Between the States. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Capitol
