Thomas Jefferson

George Washington and John Adams were not in association with any party. They were Christian men who based their thoughts on scripture and their reason. Jefferson created the first party and he ran a slanderous campaign against John Adams. Jefferson was at best agnostic but I suspect he was an atheist. Washington and Adams were honorable men. Jefferson conducted his attacks against Adams through other people and through sympathetic newspapers. Jefferson was a brilliant and dishonorable man. I prefer people that have been abused, poor people, and regular people. They make more sense than the brilliant people of this world.

A brutish man knoweth not – A man who is stupid, and who is like the beasts or brutes; that is, a man whose tastes and propensities are like the brutes, or who does not seem to act as if endowed with a rational nature. The idea evidently is, that there are many such people, and that it is not to be wondered at that they have no exalted idea of the greatness of God. As a matter of fact there are many in human form – many made in the image of God – who seem to have no more notion of God, and who see no more wisdom and goodness in his works, than the horse or the ox. Isaiah 1:3 NIV.

Proverbs 1:7 (NIV)
7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
