413-423 – • OCR (10/26/2011) Atheists misquote Jefferson on O.C. billboard.
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. The Jefferson Library Collection at Monticello lists it on a page of spurious Jefferson quotes.
Bruce Gleason, whose group paid for this and other recent atheism billboards that have gone up in O.C. in recent months, said Wednesday he wasn't sure about the origin of the quote.
He agreed that Monticello was an authoritative source.
"You're absolutely right," he said. "I should have done the research before I put my billboard up."
The quote on the billboard is an abridged version of a quote that first appeared in a 1906 book called "Six Historic Americans," by John E. Remsburg, who attributed it to a "Letter to Dr. Woods."
It reads: "I have recently been examining all the known superstitions of the world, and do not find in our particular superstition (Christianity) one redeeming feature. They are all alike, founded upon fables and mythologies."
The Jefferson Library knows of no letter to a Dr. Woods ever written by Jefferson, or of any appearance of the phrase anywhere in his writings.
On a page about spurious quotes attributed to Thomas Jefferson, the Jefferson Library writes: "We are asked about this one on a fairly regular basis. As with many spurious Jefferson quotes, it is frequently seen on various Internet sites. Many sites do not cite a source, but a good number of those that do attribute this quote to a letter from TJ to a 'Dr. Wood.'
"As far as we know, TJ never wrote to an individual calling him/herself Dr. Wood. Another suspicious element is the statement that he does not find in Christianity 'one redeeming feature.' One presumes that Jefferson did, in fact, find some redeeming features in Christianity, otherwise he would not have taken the time to paste together his own versions of the Bible." //

My Summary –
New York ACORN became New York Communities for Change in 2009.
Jon Kest ran ACORN and now runs NYCC.
NYCC pays about 100 former ACORN staff $100 a day to "work" at the OWS protests.
NYCC pays dozens of homeless people $10 an hour to "work" at the OWS protests.
NYCC staff go door-to-door raising money for worthwhile-sounding causes but spend the money on OWS.

• TheBlaze.com (10/7/2011) VIDEO EXPOSING HOW 'OCCUPY WALL STREET' WAS ORGANIZED FROM DAY ONE BY SEIU/ACORN FRONT – THE WORKING FAMILY PARTY, AND HOW THEY ALL TIE TO THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, DNC, DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS OF AMERICA, TIDES AND GEORGE SOROS. Who's really behind the "spontaneous" Occupy Wall Street park-ins now plaguing 80 cities in this country, that began with the Day of Rage on September 17th? This whole thing was planned months ago by Stephen Lerner, anti-capitalist and union agitator who sits on the International Executive Board of the SEIU, and ACORN founder Wade Rathke, who was president of the SEIU in New Orleans. This link takes you to audio from The Left Forum on March 19, 2011, in which Lerner lays out his plans for what would become OWS. OWS is just part of an anti-banking jihad that hopes to bring down the stock market, a new financial collapse, and eventually the global end of capitalism. Lerner had reportedly visited the White House four times before this all started. Lerner has been called an "economic terrorist." There're lots of YouTube videos of him.
