You are absolutely wrong that the bible was the guide for the founding fathers. This is a HUGE misconception on the part of many Americans. I suggest you check your history books - with very few exceptions, the founding fathers were DEISTS and most shunned organized religion. There is loads of evidence to support this, not least of which is an excellent book by Thomas Paine called The Age of Reason. It would be difficult to find a book that is more critical of organized religion, Christianity in particular.
