Is America a Christian Nation?
Was America Founded as a Christian Nation?

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

RE: Is America a Christian Nation?
I was going to post that same link. It was surprising to see, especially from a large outfit like CNN. It is almost like they had a fleeting moment of something akin to journalism.

Quote:If, by the question, one is asking whether the Founding Fathers relied on Protestant Christian principles in drafting the essential documents and in organizing the new governments, then the answer is a resounding "no."

Quote:If, finally, the meaning of the question is whether Christian impulses and rhetoric existed during the founding period and impacted the "great debate" about revolution and republican governance, then the answer is "yes" (although the question would then lose its distinctiveness at this level of abstraction).

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

No. Drinking Beverage

It was founded on principles of The Enlightenment.

RE: Is America a Christian Nation?
It is not. And they clearly said so.
The Treaty with Tripoli (November 1796) was passed unanimously in Congress, by the Founders, written by the administration of George Washington, and signed by Adams.

Article 11 :
"As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion,-as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen,-and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

I was assuming that since Christians claim America was founded on Christian principles, and we were colonized by England...
