The US is a Christian nation in the sense that the majority of its citizens call themselves Christians, and have been influenced by Christian doctrine. As a result, many Christian values are American values - or are only recently ceasing to be - such as homophobia and atheophobia. In that sense, America is a Christian nation in many ways.<quoted text>Interjecting! They, the Xtain Fundie -Neocons still say US born a Christian nation and is the law... how you will counter this?
But the American government is not Christian. It is secular. The rights it guarantees are not god given. They arise from the mind of humanist philosophers, and gain their legitimacy through the consent of the governed. And I don't care of the Founders were Christian, deist, atheist, or anything else.
Americanism as a political philosophy is radically different from the Christian biblical model for government. And there is no Christian law except the little bit that has leaked through the wall of separation since the inception of the nation - some blue laws, laws inserting god in the pledge and currency, etc,
Is that what you meant?
