No matter how much they say it, it will never, ever be true. What's even more enraging is that they claim we're the historical revisionists by refuting them. So much for "thou shalt not bear false witness." Incredibly sleazy.

Washington was never quoted on that. In short this is referring to the Treaty of Tripoli.

 

Officially called the "Treaty of peace and friendship between the United States of America and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli, of Barbary," most refer to it as simply the Treaty of Tripoli. In Article 11, it states: "As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Musselmen; and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."

 

The preliminary treaty began with a signing on 4 November, 1796 (the end of George Washington's last term as president) and was ratified by John Adams in 1797. If anything, quote Joel Barlow with that statement.

DW is correct. That wasn't Washington. If it was written by anyone, it was written by John Adams.
