Whoa.....the poster made a post to prove his feelings that you agreed with that "As the government of the United States of America is not founded in any sense on the Christian religion..." represents explicitly how all the settlers to the founding fathers and politicians felt EXACTLY as you two mean it from that sentence. You're both fricking uneducated biased idiots.<quoted text>
If you don't think it was accurate, show us where in the constitution it mentions "Christianity", or God for that matter.. It doesn't... What is a constitution that has no mention of such and builds a wall between church and state? It's secular stupid!.. Your arguments are nothing more than pleading appeals to ignorance.. There was no "Christian Nation". And I will take Thomas Jefferson's word over yours... Yeah, an actual founding father, not you..
Just reading Thomas Jefferson's own letter on separation of church and state was more than enough... You're an idiot, and no the founding fathers who made this country did not have to do shit in providing a pro / con argument.. They knew what kind of government they wanted to build regardless if you believe it biased or not. Your argument is like pleading they were prejudice if they had said this nation wasn't founded on Islam, or Greek Mythology. And do tell us why the founding fathers who were largely deists would claim Christianity as the foundation of their government? Are you stupid or trolling with woeful ignorance?
The fact is what you want to believe isn't true. The fact is that most of the settlers in the thirteen colonies that came here to get away from religious persecution were in fact deists of varying Christian rooted beliefs. The Puritans and Quakers are good examples. The first laws instituted here were English laws that were very Bible based in the ten commandments. Yes their were laws not Bible based obviously. But laws from slavery, indentured servants, witch craft, bigamy, adultery, etc, etc were all Bible based laws directly and indirectly influenced. The value of placing one's hand on the Bible was thought to prove one's honesty for a few centuries here. Politicians opened and closed with prayers for a couple centuries. Kids were taught the Bible in schools for a couple centuries.
America was heavily influenced by Christianity in all walks of life for the first two centuries. Other nations and countries came to visualize and believe America was a Christian nation based on Christianity.
The US government wasn't directly founded upon the Christian religion. But politicians mostly deists with a Christian religion lean ran the purported "non-secular" US government for the first two centuries strong. They established the separation of church and state so that we wouldn't become as England had became, a church based government. And they succeeded. To this day we have no church based government.
But the phrase "As the government of the United States of America is not founded in any sense on the Christian religion..." It's true to the US not being a church ran government, but it's not true in a literal meaning of how it was wrote. Sad you can't see the difference and that's your bad, not mine :)
