Other Considerations Hope this second comment will be worthwhile, for this is an important subject. There certainly is anti-Christian principles in Locke, Jefferson, and the Deistic founders, many of whom were in secret societies.
However, strict Calvinists, like Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and Patrick Henry, also were anti-federalists, who saw a usurpation in the Constitution, and opposed it on just grounds. Yet they also resisted the tyrannical, and ecclesiastic rule of the Church of England (many of them of persecuted Puritan heritage) in the American "revolution", which they saw as a "restoration" of their right to religious liberty to obey God and worship him freely, which was denied to their Calvinistic fathers, and drove them to the New World.
Interesting, Relevant Lecture! So the question is (and appears to be answered by American history and the U.S. Constitution), were Christians duped into supporting the Deists, like John Locke, and the "founding fathers", who were Masons and Deists, to establish THEIR IDEAL government and a Novus Ordo Seclorum?
Democracy is Humanism, and a government philosophy that does not recognize God, which actually led to the so-called American Civil War, Northern Liberalism vs. Southern Calvinism (which too much admired Greeks, ironically, with idolatry, architecture, and philosophy), which let to the Babylonian Captivity of the South by the Yankee liberals and humanists crying "emancipation". Abolitionism then led to feminism, all of which are communistic philosophies, which Democracy actually is.
Democracy is the political philosophy of the UN which is anti-Christian, but is based in New York City, America's Babylon and power center.
