Myths from Thomas Jefferson's history debunked
'Many today spend much time in speculation and little time in researching facts'
When it comes to slavery and Thomas Jefferson, most Americans think they know the truth – Jefferson fathered children with his own slave, Sally Hemings, and he refused to free his slaves upon his death.
But the reality is those assumptions are myths.
That’s from a historian who is taking on the most persistent misconceptions surrounding America’s most enigmatic Founding Father.
David Barton, president of the pro-family organization WallBuilders and the author of “The Jefferson Lies,” says there is almost no evidence to suggest Jefferson actually fathered children with Hemings.
“To this day, most Americans think that DNA proved that Thomas Jefferson fathered the children of slave Sally Hemings,” said Barton. “But how can that be when Thomas Jefferson’s DNA was never tested? It was for this reason that the 1998 announcement of Jefferson’s alleged paternity was pulled only two weeks after the story’s release. But no one heard of that recall and correction.”
The accusation Jefferson had fathered children with his slaves originated in the wild charges of James T. Callender. Callender was a onetime political ally of Jefferson who authored vitriolic attacks against Jefferson’s Federalist opponents.
However, Callender eventually demanded then-President Jefferson appoint him Postmaster of Richmond, Virginia. When Jefferson refused, Callender turned his poison pen on Jefferson, accusing Jefferson of various misdeeds including fathering illegitimate children with Hemings.
Jefferson could have filed charges of libel. Instead, he trusted in God, writing, “[T]he false witness will meet a Judge who has not slept over his slanders.”

REASON WHY Thomas Jefferson had a copy of the evil Muslim Qur'an (Koran) was to study his enemy - the Barbary pirates were attacking and holding for ransom - numerous American ships in and around Tripoli.
Below is a what happened when John Adams and Thomas Jefferson (then Ambassador to France) met with the Muslim Tripoli Ambassador. Jefferson and America had their own problems with evil Muslim terrorists - who were only following what is written in their evil book, the Qur'an. 55 times the Qur'an (Koran) tells Muslims to make war on unbelievers (any non-Muslim). That's just the beginning of why I call it an evil book. It also lies that Jesus never died on a cross. To me that is the most evil lie in that book. /s/ Steve K
Why Did President Jefferson Read the Qur'an (Koran)?
Jefferson and Adams sat down to talk with this man Muslim Tripoli Ambassador). They asked him why Tripoli attacked ships. Why attack the United States? They had no previous interactions. Why the hostility? Why did they choose America as an enemy?
The Tripoli Muslim ambassador was very straightforward. He said, basically, "That's what we do. We are commanded to do so by Allah." Jefferson later wrote that the Tripoli ambassador told him, "It was written in their Koran that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman (Muslim) who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to Paradise."
Completely taken aback by this revelation, Jefferson decided to look into the matter further, and did the one thing everyone should do: He read the Koran. He learned what Islam was about.
That is Islam is pure EVIL - invented by Satan 600 years after God's Son (Jesus/Yeshua) walked upon and lived on the earth. Islam was made to deflect the salvation Jesus/Yeshua already gave us by his suffering and death on the cross. That's evil! It is the cause of so so many sweet Muslim souls will face damnation. Belief, Faith, following and truthfully beseeching Jesus/Yeshua to forgive our sins is the primary requirement God the Father for salvation. NOBODY can approach God the Father by bypassing Jesus/Yeshua and His atoning suffering & death for our sins!
