Jefferson's Jesus, Jefferson's God -- The Value System Beneath Enlightened Thought By Dr. Gerry Lower

AxisofLogic/ Featured:

"For 1700 years, the people have watched as Rome-based religious belief has denigrated the ideas and words of the Christ. 'We will not,' in Einstein's words, 'solve the problems of the world from the same level of thinking that created them.' Religious capitalism has destroyed virtually everything marvelous and meaningful in America, i.e., everything based in human values, human rights and human decency. We can all do better than that with Jefferson's Jesus and Jefferson's God.

'That is the beginning and the end.' (Peter Gay, The Enlightenment, Simon & Schuster, NY, 1973)"
