Thomas Jefferson - Zen Biblical Editor

I am becoming increasingly enamored by Beliefnet and its true embracing of the concept of interfaith. (However, rest assured, this is not a faith blog.) At a time when John McCain is gaining the endorsement of slippery pond scum such as John Hagee, I am glad to see a reasonably objective reporting on matters of faith. Though even they take a point of view of being objective, which is subjective in its own right.

Particularly interesting is their article on the "Jefferson Bible" and the multiple cuts he made. In general, he seemed to make wise choices. If Mao could hone it all down to a little red book, why couldn't the Christians do the same? Too bad Jefferson is not around today to help me out on this bog.

Oh how interesting our 3rd President went out of his way to do this. He must've been really bored or was trying to get that tempting forbidden fruit Sally Hemmings off his mind.

WAT - Well, maybe since he couldn't blog and shop on eBay during Cabinet meetings he was blue penciling the good book to keep from getting bored.
