    I just read about his political positions on wikipedia. He seems slightly more idealistic than the typical democrat, other than that he doesn't really stand out at all. He's not close to as radical as Ron Paul, that's probably why we haven't heard much about him in the press (re: Rhadamanthus).
    I don't wanna!

    He was a deist as you correctly assert but not your typical one. He was one of the prime movers (against a majority) who wanted more references to god and chuch in the constitution.

    He also said,

    "I have found Christian dogma unintelligible. Early in life, I absenteed myself from Christian assemblies."
    "Lighthouses are more helpful then churches."
    "The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason."
    "In the affairs of the world, men are saved, not by faith, but by the want of it."


    He sounds more like the kind of guy who believed in a god, but not the one mentioned in the bible necessarily.

    Franklin made references to God in his writings, but he didn't seem to be into religion in any major way. He believed in beer, not dogma.

    As an ESFJ, I will drink just about anything that tastes good, as long as I have drinking companions. I have some Yuengling Lager in the fridge, some rather so-so reds in the wine fridge at the moment, and Jack Daniel's Single Barrel in the liquor cabinet. After the gym and then dinner, something will be hit hard during the Flyers game.
