The Treaty of Tripoli


The Corvallis Secular Society has placed a king-sized exterior bus sign designed by the Freedom From Religion Foundation on a bus in Corvallis, Ore., stating: "The United States is not founded on the Christian religion."

The advertisement quotes the Treaty of Tripoli, 1797, which was negotiated under the administration of President George Washington, and signed by President John Adams.

The sign excerpts the exact quote: "The Government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion."

A lot of folks really need to see this sign...
