I don't think it's ignorant

Perhaps it could have been better explained.

George Washington and Ben Franklin were Masons. John Adams spoke favourably of the order but never joined. The requirement of all Masons is that they believe in God no matter what their faith. It was very important that all members believed in a higher power that they could all find unity in.

You see, there is only ONE God. But there are countless Faiths on this planet that have their own divinely inspired representations of this ONE God.

America was founded as One nation under God. Not under Christ, not under Allah, not under Shiva, etc.

But the un-Christians want to convince real Christians of a falsehood so that they remain divided by their different Faiths of the same God. Sure, Washington could have practiced the Christian faith of God but he understood that America should include all men (and women) of God.

If you are defending your version of faith, rather than God, then you are missing a bigger picture that Washington and others were enlightened to.

You see, we're all in this together regardless of the metaphors we identify our version of God with. The Metaphors are not God but simply teachings to be one with God.

I hope that's a more suitable answer :)
