In a review of 15,000 items from the founders, the Bible
was found to have directly contributed to 34% of their quotes
. 60% came indirectly, so the Bible can be credited in some way for 94%of the quotes of the Founding Fathers. (p. 48-49, America's God and Country, William J. Federer ) All in all, it is fairly clear that our founding fathers were Christians, not Deists.
