Thomas Jefferson Quote

β€œIt has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.”

Excellent observation. I would add to the political opinions β€” religious beliefs. Today's greatest religious patrons and advocates for the gods of pleasure and Moloch's dogmas and cannon executions hate life's nobility. Said religious patrons also hate inalienable rights, liberty, peace and the laws of nature and of nature's God while not being able to distinguish between political and social opposition.
