Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As can be noted by looking at the Wiki discussion page (locked) on Jefferson, he's pretty controversial. Not as controversial as Ayn Rand, but up there. So editing the page is going to be pretty problematical.

As an American politician, Jefferson had to profess some sort of religion, but his deism and/or Unitarianism are at the far extreme of what is possible while staying within the "organized" religions.

I suppose the point is that our Founding Fathers were a pretty solid Enlightenment crowd, and that we have regressed over time. Lincoln and his Bible quoting, FDR and his dragging ministers into the Executive circle, and just worse and worse as we go forward...
