Here's a list of prominent Deists

Willard "Mitt" Romney thinks Secularists (which include Deists) are WRONG!!!

Here's a list of some of them, including a few who created America.

So my question is this:

Are these people who were evil idiots who didn't know what they were doing?

Or is it more likely that Mitt Romney is an opportunistic, principle-changing, power hungry pissant who's just flapping his lips to make the kind of noises he hopes will get him elected (then he can stand on the roof of the White House and shout, "Top of the world, Ma!" just like Jimmy Cagney* in <White Heat)

List of deists

This is a partial list of people who have been categorized as deists, the belief in a God based on natural religion only, or belief in religious truths discovered by people through a process of reasoning, independent of any revelation through scripture or prophets.

*There's another reason Governor Romney makes me think of Jimmy Cagney: someone once observed that the reason America loved a man who played vicious scum over and over again, was because no one ever believed a role he played or a line he spoke. They could always see the man behind the pose. Same with Romney, only in his case, it's not a charming hoofer behind the mask, but one of the Vril.
