But was America founded on Christian principles? Just read the first words of the Declaration of Independence:<quoted text>
WOW!! What a distortion of what I have posted.
To start with I posted our country was founded on Christian principles not founded on the Christian religion.
And that Constitution does not say anything about baseball being
American favorite national pass time, still many people think
that it is.
Harley DAVIDSON is a American icon, but that Constitution says
nothing about that.
You are taking my opinion way out of context and distorting it.
Fact is Christianity is by far our country most common
And our country was founded on Christian principles, example of
that was given in some of your post, our founding
fathers were freethinkers.....that is a Christian principle.
BTW....Most of the Founders were very much Christians.
We our very much a Christian country and this is GOD's country.
We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
From the beginning, America's founders accepted the reality that basic rights were inseparable from human beings and they recognized that those inalienable rights were not given by government nor acquired by force, but that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are the gifts of the Creator.
In 1844, the Court said, "Christianity is part of our common law."
In 1892, the Supreme Court said this: "No purpose of action against religion can be imputed to any legislation, state or national because this is a religious people. This is historically true."
In 1930, the U.S. Supreme Court said this: "We are a Christian people, according to our motto."
In 1952, the U.S. Supreme Court said, "We are a religious people whose institutions presuppose a Supreme Being.
The question isn't - Was America founded on Christian principles? The question is - what world view has given birth to and sustained America? The answer to that question is simple: Christianity.
