The problem with our country being a christian nation is that it has a terrible record on human rights.Millions have been killed in the name of God, first the natives, then the witches and now the illegals.
Americans love to use their moral christian principles to deny basic rights to those who do not follow their beliefs.
Do we really need Christian principles in government or do we need a government that believes all were create equal and should have the same rights as other, etc -Gays, Black, Women, Jews etc etc.

The individual is the only minority of any consequence to a moral government.
In terms of government and religion, any collusion at all, at any level, only serves to make false deliniations of groups.
It's not that government shouldn't have any influence over religion or vice versa, it is that neither should have the authority or control over the lives of people for that to even be a possibility.

just how many illegals have been killed in the USA? Move to the Middle East if you want to see millions being killed in the name of religion and a total disregard of human rights.

c'mon man -'my religion is quite so bad as that one' is a pretty weak arguement.
I don't think all 1400 years of jihad has killed as many as a few boats full of smallpox carrying missionaries in the 1500s sent by christian kings and queens who were fully aware of what would happen. Not even close.

Thanks dumazz for answering a question that wasn't asked and there is no religion here for you to sweat so take your BS and park it.

If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck.
This sure looks and quacks like 'heey christianity aint so bad! look at islam!'
I can't see how else there is to take this comment.
