This is in response to the Sept. 7 letter “Inappropriate books.” Perhaps, before you vilify the Huron library, you may consider making a visit and checking out some history books.

Thomas Jefferson was NOT a Christian nor did he write the Constitution. Jefferson was a Deist. Google it. While you are at it, search “Jefferson Bible” and you may be surprised. Jefferson was one of the main reasons we currently have a separation of church and state.

Jefferson did not write the Constitution. He wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence which was submitted by a five-man committee and later revised. It was in fact James Madison who was integral in drafting and putting together the Constitution as we now know it. However, there was this little thing called the Constitutional Convention. But don’t take my word for it, read it in a book.
