Was Thomas Jefferson a “Christian”?

At least one historian thinks not:

In fact, it was because he [Jefferson] thought Christianity had been so thoroughly corrupted that he created his own Bible, slicing out the miracles and thereby “rescuing” Jesus and separating the “diamonds” from the “dunghill” that was the rest of the Bible. Imagine the attack ads that could be made out of that!
