While I like messing with morons as much as the next guy...Jefferson was a Deist. Also there is not proof that he had a slave woman as a mistress. All DNA tests showed were that a descendent of Sally Hemmings' last son had DNA consistent with a male of Jefferson's line. So bascially a male in his family. I recall reading an article which showed it was far more likely his younger brother who fathered the children on Sally Hemings. There is no way to know for sure, and historians are split on the issue. He worked for emancipation of slaves but was shot down at every turn.

somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug
