RE: Lincoln's Christianity by Michael Burkhimer
I have deliberately avoided this thread because I am not well-versed on Lincoln's religion or lack thereof. However, I have found myself irritated by some of the comments (i.e. loaded questions) that have been posted. I would just like to comment that Rob's latest post, to me, is the most logical and appropriate one to make.

How many professional historians (and theologians?) have attempted to discern Lincoln's religious leanings without reaching a documental conclusion? I have not read their books, but if years of research, analysis, and writing have still left us scratching our heads for a true answer, our meager contributions aren't going to solve the problem. Frankly, I think some of "our" comments are being made just to tarnish the Lincoln image. For what purpose? How many other Presidents have had their religious beliefs so closely scrutinized?
