The Founding Fathers were...(drumroll please)...Deists!

Kenneth Davis has a fun column in todays NYT about the religion of the Founding Fathers. For most reputable historians, this is a moot issue. No one can find any sources that show Jefferson, Washington, Franklin, Adams, et al were in any way akin to today's Christian fundamentalists. But this column outlines that nicely.
