Jefferson liked the teachings of the bible but not the miracles and god in the bible, that's why he rewrote it removing the miracles but focusing on the teachings.
You only have to read the letters Jefferson wrote to his friends and family to see how his religious affiliations lay.
There were Christian and non Christian people in early American politics, to me it is a non-issue. However, I don't like how people try to change people in history to serve their own agendas.
American's should remember these people for who they are and what they did, not cut them from the history books, take their quotes out of context and sift through mounds of contradictory evidence to find the few paragraphs that could mean what they want.
As to re-writing the bible, it has been done plenty of times before, only a few revisions have stuck though.
