Where are the Christian Principles?


It is widely held that America was Founded upon Christian Principles, but what exactly are those principles? It is also agreed that the Founding Principles of the US are found in The Bill of Rights. In reading, again, those Rights I find done that reflect any theistic dogma or belief. Certainly, Freedom of Religion, speech, assembly, press, trial by peers, the Right to bear arms are not in the Ten Commandments. Could it be that our Principles of Individual freedom are more to an Atheism, that shuns omnipotent godly and secular authority?

    Twerk-Atheistic nation was not stated-more to an Atheistic perspective was. "Freedom to believe-----" is not a Christian principle. Christian nation--that religion and government combine and become a theocracy is more to the truth.

    That's funny. The Christian publisher of Barton's last book stopped its publication because it was completely shoddy. This is their statement: "There were historical details — matters of fact, not matters of opinion, that were not supported at all."

    Kiss-You are not speaking to the choir here and your response completely ignored the question. Perhaps, you would like to restate/rethink your reply.
