These are the favorites of modern day school education. They rarely mention the other fathers. And, amazingly enough, Jefferson wanted Bibles in the schools and Franklin implored prayer before proceedings.
The overwhelming weight of evidence supports the Christianity of the founding fathers. Much of what you describe of Jefferson could be attributted to many Catholic priests today - plenty of heresy. However, your extension that he would be proud of the separation of state that exists today does not follow. The letter to Danbury Baptist Church in no way expressed this type of desire and he has no other writings that hint he would want it the way it is today. His actions indicate strongly otherwise.
The bottom line is Jefferson and Franklin were not the only founding fathers. They were a small percentage of them. The fact that courts have seized upon the least Christian founding fathers and interpreted them to mean something even far less Christian than they ever wanted does not mean that the courts have been reflecting the will of the founders of this country. They have been doing exactly opposite.
