"Atheists' billboard quote isn't Jefferson's"

Even skeptics get things wrong....... (in this case, it was an atheist group)

COSTA MESA – A group of atheists called Backyard Skeptics is planning to unveil a billboard at 1545 Newport Blvd., Wednesday afternoon with a quote from Thomas Jefferson bashing Christianity.

The quote reads, "I do not find in Christianity one redeeming feature. It is founded on fables and mythology."

There's one problem: There's no evidence Jefferson ever said it..........(continues)....

Any group, organization, or individual.... in their zest for their "cause" or stamping their opinion in writing, may fail to do the necessary research to verify a quote.
