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?
