The Washington quote is a fake and you should be ashamed for disseminating it when a simple Google search proves it as such. http://fakehistory.wordpress.com/201...rican-schools/
That first Adams quote also was never said by him. http://fakehistory.wordpress.com/201...an-revolution/
As for the rest, I'm not going to bother: showing the first two to be total fabrications is enough to bring the entire post into question. If you want to repost these things without bothering to check if they're factual, then I have nothing more to say on it. It speaks for itself.

that's funny, even the site itself is questioned, but since it is on the internet, "it must be true".Jay Shrewsbury

If people deny or confirm something long enough people will believe them, I call it the Slender Man effect. The simple fact of the matter is that most of these men were religions but were smart enough not to bind their religion on their new country. Not even sure what the point is in denying this fact.

"The founding fathers were Christian. So this is a Christian nation!"
"The founding fathers created a non-religious nation. So they weren't religious and there for not Christian!"
Neither statement is correct, but that won't stop people from saying them.

Let's assume for the sake of argument that all of the formentioned quotes by our founding fathers were true and that they did indeed want the United States to be a christian nation. Why not just write it in the constitution? Why even include freedom of religion in the first amendment?

Exactly, veg. It doesn't matter that they were Christian, they created a nation separate from religion.
