I see the quote, "Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God." attributed to Jefferson. I see on the Monticello site the well-documented quote, "Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God." My question is whether there is evidence of the first quote being made by Tom or perhaps it should be listed as a spurious quote at http://www.monticello.org/library/reference/spurious.html because if you key it into any search engine you will see it attributed to Tom.
