9. I can't beleive everyone is missing the obvious here
That was a weird thing for Franklin to have said, seeing as he was a self proclaimed Deist.

The card is disgusting as it seems to be an excuse for the American Empire they are foisting on the world (by killing people). But it is also a strange thing for BF to have said and it seems he was refering to the US as an empire?
