A sensibly written and very much on the mark comment! It is very sad to me that a certain faction gains all their reactive traction from false/negative writings and narratives; clouding the true interest of the foundation of our great nation.

I am interested in a painting with the head of John the Baptist on a platter. My six-year-old grandson recently asked me who John the Baptist was. I was describing him, mentioned the queen who requested his head on a platter, and my grandson said, "Isn't there a picture of this at Monticello?" He said it was in the room with all the books; then he thought maybe it was in the room with the pictures of the presidents. We are members and will be returning to Monticello, but I'd like to be able to tell him more about the painting. Emily Walls Ray, Richmond, VA

I can't find this either, but it can be very difficult to prove or disprove a quote without exact wording.

This sounds like the passage in the Declaration of Independence, "...That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government..." See https://www.archives.gov/founding-docs/declaration-transcript

It is exactly that, paraphrased. I do not think that the top statement represents the beliefs of the Jefferson Monticello folks, it is merely a common enough statement one may find on the Internet. I have seen this version many times citing Jefferson as the author. For someone looking for the entire correct quote, the paraphrased quoted is listed as a reference. I see no anti-Christian agenda here and find the accusation rather ridiculous.
