Thomas Jefferson was the Anti-Christ? Say It Aint So!

According to the above site, Thomas Jefferson said the following:


“Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not.”

So Jefferson was opposed to being too pacifistic?  Is that why we have not seen more people converting weapons into farming equipment?  How ironic is that?  I consider Thomas Jefferson to be my favorite American, if not one of the greatest people the world has ever known.  And yet, this above quote shows how he reasoned doing the very thing I would want people to do has dire consequences.  How can I reconcile that?

Some people have had some good ideas about it:
