Question with Boldness

Glenn Beck's favorite catchphrase of the moment is "question with boldness." It's from a letter Thomas Jefferson wrote on April 21st, 1803, to his friend Benjamin Rush. But I always giggle when I hear it, since this is the whole quote:
"Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear."

You can't make this stuff up. I wonder when someone will tell Beck about this?
