Defer instead of think.....

There you go again, shirking your responsibility for actually thinking and just deferring to "authority".
The founders may very well be authorities on the Constitution AT THE TIME. The Constitution and surrounding law has significantly morphed and has been reinterpreted over and over - for better or for worse. I will leave judgments out for this response.
As far as being authorities on other topics...this topic was on personal responsibility versus handing over responsibility for yourself to some god. I'm pretty sure that none of the founders were clergymen or educated religious philosophers.
The fact that they advocated freedom of religion as well as freedom from religion showed how they valued liberty OVER their religions.
I am merely saying that religious beliefs are a personal choice, and pointing out the hypocritical contradiction between personal responsibility and asking and desiring and needing help from some authoritarian figure. We choose to believe whatever makes us feel good. Religion is unnecessary for liberty.
