In the original draft of the Declaration of Independence; Jefferson wrote "we hold these truths to be sacred".
Franklin crossed out "sacred" and substituted "self evident".
Among other things; Franklin was probably remembering the superstitious flack that he had to endure from both Catholics and Protestants when trying to promote his "unholy" lightning rod.
