O b v i o u s l y, he didn't burn any Bibles, thus proving that
he was a Christian. Of course he didn't burn any Korans, immediately
demonstrating that he was also a Muslim. No Torahs nor Talmuds, so it
is crystal clear that Adams was a Jew in addition to being a
Christian. And a Muslim. His weekend schedule was very, very busy.
Little known historical bonus fact: John Adams steadfastly
refused to burn even a single copy of "Gulliver's Travels",
thus proving beyond any doubt that he was a Brobdingnagian
to boot. Whoda thunk it?
