They include communist philosophers and politicians like Marx, Engels, Lenin, and Mao-tse Tung (though curiously the communists of Bengal have refused to support Nasreen in her cause) and many of the founding fathers of the United States, like Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine, who did not consider themselves to be Christians. Thomas Jefferson writes that "the Bible God is a being of terrific character, cruel, vindictive, capricious and unjust." Thomas Paine writes of the Bible that "it would be more consistent that we call it the work of a demon than the word of God."
