    why not send them the info you found along with all the Jefferson quotes that show how antireligious and antichristian he really was and ask them to take the quote down?

    The denomination with the most churches in the U.S., the Southern Baptist Convention, by itself, has about 40,870 churches in the U.S., according to a survey done about 10 years ago........

    If only we could do things, like what Jon suggest, on a large scale. Otherwise, it's just one church considered and about 200,000 in the U.S. to go, according to certain estimates......

    Large-scale and in public. Religious authorities aren't known for their acceptance of criticism. The idea isn't to correct the person who posted that sign but to educate the receptive portion of the public to it's error.

    I called them and left a message about the error and gave them the website to the http://www.monticello.org/jefferson/index.html which has a good explanation of the mistake. I was planning on seeing if they took it down, and if not sending over a reporter to do a story... but didn't have time.
