6. Ray Strobo
SUBJECT: Religious Beliefs of the Founding Fathers of the United States
DESCRIPTION: What do you know about the religious beliefs of the Founding Fathers of the United States? Contrary to what one might see on the Internet or in the Media, the Founders were, by-and-large, religious men. Religion played an important role in the their public and private lives. How do we know that? The Historical Record tells us so in pretty clear terms. My book, “Founding Fathers: Atheists? Deists? Are You Sure?”, looks at the religiosity of the 56 men who signed the U.S. Declaration of Independence through the lens of over 400 separate sources: books, obituaries, newspaper articles, correspondence, speeches, wills, legislation, tombstones, magazine articles, and eulogies. An open-minded, unemotional look at this historical data leads the reader to some inescapable conclusions. (And to some interesting facts. Why do we celebrate the Fourth of July as a national holiday? No, that’s not it.)
