RE: Is America a Christian Nation?
Thanks, Thinkerbelle! I posted that to Facebook, to (hopefully) put a sock in the mouths of the family members screaming about the loss of our "Christian nation".

(Quoting self from FBook)

To my Christian friends and family screaming about this being "A Christian Nation" that (in your minds) is going the "wrong way", please learn 1) what Deist and a Unitarian Universalist are, and 2) the 1950s history of how Christianity hijacked the U.S. government, including the Pledge and the slogan on the money you like to quote so much, as part of the anti-Soviet "Red Scare".

Also, please, please read what our Founding Fathers had to say about religion in America, and consider that it is you, not the rest of us, who are attacking religious freedom in the United States.

I disagree. The pilgrims were looking for a place where they could persecute anyone who disagreed with their bullshit.

Hence the facepalm. My bad for not using the sarcasm font.
