So...because people thought 250 years ago that something was a good thing...it still is?

Regardless, we've progressed since then, and ideas such as that should be considered archaic.

Prove it was Jefferson.

"The inclusion of the lex talionis, or retaliation in kind, bothered Jefferson even as he worked on the bill. By letter he consulted with fellow committee member George Wythe and wrote, "I have strictly observed the scale of punishments settled by the Committee, without being entirely satisfied with it. The lex talionis, altho' a restitution of the Common law,...will be revolting to the humanised feelings of modern times. An eye for an eye, and a hand for a hand will exhibit spectacles in execution whose moral effect would be questionable...This needs reconsideration.""

It appears that the only thing a Chuck Norris roundhouse kick can't cure is ignorance.

Playing devil's advocate:
Well, if you say that people 250 years ago believed something wrong, and you also say that the Founding Fathers didn't make this a Christian nation, who's to say they were right?

Chuck Norris is not famous for his acting ability, intelligence or his wisdom. But he is famous for having the snot beaten out of him by Bruce Lee in Way of the Dragon.

Can you imagine a statesman proposing such a law today?
No, I cannot. I can, however easily imagine it by some political hacks, the like of which are endorsed by Chuck Norris, and propped up by millions of fundies.
3/28/2008 3:35:52 AM
Is this the same Jefferson that tore out the pages of the Bible he disagreed with?
3/28/2008 3:51:31 AM
The founders were also smart enough to know that times change. They wanted future generations to be able to chart their own course as best we saw fit, not slavishly bind ourselves to every jot and tittle of the original law.

Just because they were our founding fathers doesn't mean they were right.

Yeah, kick the gays while they're trying to get up. Nice.
3/28/2008 7:27:24 AM
It's funny, Chuck. What you call "sexual deviance" was interracial marriage without which, If I'm not mistaken, you'd not exist(and I wonder if he advocated corporal punishment), for you're half-native American. Think about it.
3/28/2008 10:35:02 AM
Holy fuck, with such ignorant and evil ideas, why can't you losers have a 'DECADE of silence', starting now.

" Jefferson's views were indeed representative of early America. "
Jefferson is the one who believed there is a wall of separation of church and state. That must mean you, as a fundie and a fan of the way the founding fathers did things, also support separation of church and state.
3/28/2008 11:54:43 AM
No, no, no. Why can't I imagine it today? Beacuse that would be absurdly cruel and unusual and thus UNCONSTITUITONAL.And Chuck Norris? You are no longer a badass. The list is to be retitled.
And I'm thinking it should be Samuel L. Jackson Facts now. ;3 Or Bruce Campbell..
3/28/2008 12:00:47 PM
Jefferson's views were indeed representative of early America.
It's a good thing a fundie finally admitted that. There are many, many, many other writings of Jefferson and the other founding fathers you should read as well.
From Jefferson himself:
Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity.
-Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia, 1782
Question with boldness even the existence of a god; because if there be one he must approve of the homage of reason more than that of blindfolded fear.
-Thomas Jefferson, Letter to Peter Carr, August 10, 1787
Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law.
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Dr. Thomas Cooper, February 10, 1814
The life and writings of Jefferson are well documented and readily available. Read more of them and learn something about our country and those who established it.

Good Chuck, you and your buddies at WorldNutDaily remember that"Jefferson's views were indeed representative of early America" next time someone mentions "seperation of church and state". Bet you won't!!!
