Before we look into the Founding Fathers, we must first ascertain the origination of liberalism. Liberalism is a philosophy, and philosophies originate in theology (study of God). In other words, whatever a person believes about life (philosophy), backs-up to his/her belief about God. Therefore, all people are religious, for all people have beliefs/philosophies about life!
According to Dictionary.com the definition of religion is:
1.a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing an oral code governing the conduct of human affairs.
2.a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreedupon by a number of persons or sects:
the Christian religion; the Buddhist religion.
3.the body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs andpractices:

5.the practice of religious beliefs; ritual observance of faith.
6.something one believes in and follows devotedly; a point or matter ofethics or conscience:

If you read carefully--with special emphasis on the first entry--you will notice that atheism fits perfectly with the definition of ‘a religion’. To offer a confirming witness, the US Supreme Court has declared atheism a religion. However, the greatest witness declaring atheism a religion is the Bible, God’s word. First, the Bible does not use the traditional definition of atheism: one who rejects the existence of God. For example, Ephesians 2:12 actually uses the Greek word ‘atheos’, which is translated as “without God”; yet, this passage uses ‘atheos’ to identify anyone who is without Christ! This idea of defining atheism as ‘anyone without Christ’ is also confirmed in Colossians 2:8. And finally, the spiritual origin of atheism is declared in 1Timothy 4:1. What’s my point?
1.Atheism is a religion, like any other religion
2.All religions give birth to philosophies or doctrines
3.Liberalism is a philosophy/doctrine of the religion of atheism.
As we will soon see, these three points are confirmed yet again by Liberalism’s Founding Fathers--who are ‘ALL’ atheists!!
What is important to remember about these people that I refer to as Liberalism’s Founders is that they all live according to their religious beliefs, in spite of the fact that they reject the existence of God with their tongues. In other words, like every human being, what they declare, is in fact their philosophy, which originates in their religion.
1.Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527). Dictionary.com describes Machiavellianism as: characterized by subtle or unscrupulous cunning, deception, expediency, or dishonesty. Its thesaurus uses additional words like, calculating, conniving, deceitful, contriving, underhanded.
Machiavelli was born into a period of time where ‘religious’ figures, such as cardinals and popes, were abject hypocrites. Many of the ‘religious’ leaders of that day were interested only in power, position, and money. Their actions revealed a rejection of the Word of God, while wearing all the external religious paraphernalia. Machiavelli’s life experiences with these people inspired him to reject the ‘god’ of those hypocrites, and pen ‘The Prince’, where he outlines his philosophy/doctrines:
-“by experience in our times that the princes who have done great things are those who have taken little account of faith.” Of course, his use of ‘faith’ is in the contemporary atheist mode, which is restricted to a profession of belief in God. However, he misses the fact that the word ‘faith’ simply means ‘belief’. Therefore, all people have faith, or belief—regardless of their choice of religion!
-“if all men were good, this teaching would not be good; but because they are wicked and do not observe faith with you, you also do not have to observe it with them.”
-“A prince should thus take care that nothing escape his mouth that is not full of the above-mentioned five qualities, he should appear all mercy, all faith, all honesty, all humanity, all religion. And nothing is more necessary to appear to have than this last quality.” He refers to “religion”.
-“Everyone sees how you appear, few touch how you are.”
-“For a man who wants to make a profession of good in all regards must come to ruin among so many who are not good. Hence it is necessary to a prince, if he wants to maintain himself, to learn to be able not to be good, and to use this and not use it according to necessity.”
Machiavelli is the father of the philosophy of ‘the end justifies the means’; i.e. one may do evil, to achieve good.
‘The Prince’ was one of the favorite books of Russian dictator V.I. Lenin, hence it is either a foundation, or a facilitator of Communism and Socialism (also doctrines of atheism*). Furthermore, the rapper Tupac, while imprisoned became a ‘disciple’ (another religious term) of Machiavelli, and even took on his name. This means his rap took on the spirit of his ‘lord’, which again is atheism and liberalism!
If you take a moment to ponder these truths, you will conclude that Machiavelli lives on through his disciples: liberals! If you don’t see it, allow me to explain. The philosophy of relativism (another doctrine of atheism, and thereby liberalism), rejects the absolutes of the Biblical God, declaring: “all truth is relative”. Therefore, relativism is another foundation for Machiavellian’s: the end justifies the means. This thinking is all over contemporary liberal thought like wet is on a fish!! As a real life example, just take the most recent ‘liberal’ folly allowing a man to decide to be a woman. In spite of the ‘absolute’ , incontrovertible, scientific evidence…or laws of nature**… that xy chromosomes equals a male, and xx chromosomes equals a female--through its religious belief: “all truth is relative”--liberalism foolishly declares a man can be a woman by simply saying, “I am a woman!” I repeat, this kind of irrational, liberal, religious fervor is all over, not just American society…but the world!!! It is a consequence of the rejection of the Biblical God!
I implore you by the mercies of God…reject liberalism, or it will destroy not only your personal faith in Christ Jesus, but the nation’s righteousness, ‘THE’ facilitator of God’s approval and blessing(Pro14:34)!!
*While atheism can tolerate capitalism/Free Markets, it can only do so inconsistent with its faith. As we will see in later tidbits, Communism/Socialism are atheist doctrines, whereas the philosophy of Free Markets originates in the Bible!
**The laws of nature are theologically known as the law of God written in the creation (Rom1:20; Ps19:1-3,Ps111:7).
