You said the American Revolution was caused by atheists, not christians.<quoted text>
"The United States of America was founded by Christians as a Christian nation.
No, it was not and is not a theocracy. We do not have an official state church or an official state religion. In fact, the same Constitutional amendment which guarantees our freedom of religious expression also forbids an official state religion or church:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
But our country was undoubtedly founded by Christians. A few of the founders such as Benjamin Franklin and possibly Thomas Jefferson were not Christians, but even they were well grounded in the Bible and generally adhered to the moral and philosophical wisdom of Christianity.
From the colonial charters which almost universally cited the glory of God and the advancement of Christianity as their motivation, to the Declaration of Independence which cites âthe Laws of Nature and of Natureâs Godâ and our Creator as the source of our rights and appeals âto the Supreme Judge of the worldâ and declares âa firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence,â to the U.S. Constitution which acknowledges the Christian worldview and even the Christian day of worship, our nation was founded on Christian principles so clearly that it cannot be rationally denied."
Make your mind up, wetpants.
