Wasn’t American founded a Christian nation?


By Christian nation, I mean that its laws and institutions were largely shaped by Christian values and ideas. The systematic study of tens of thousands of documents in founding era conclusively proves America's Christian roots. Even in a casual perusal of the Christian inscriptions on monuments and buildings in Washington DC show overwhelming evidence for America's Christian heritage.

    Great answer! The Constitution was silent about Christianity largely because it was assumed that religious establishments were left up to the state governments.

    Mitch, you'll notice that I was careful to define what I meant by Christian Nation. The Supreme Court declared America a Christian nation in 1892 and 1952.

    And it's no accident, there's a leftist agenda to secular America!

    The founders made clear that the Founding documents reflected the will of the people and not their own private beliefs. The public meaning of what he said and did is what is relevant to the founding American values and ideas.

    The pilgrims wanted more than religious freedom, Holland was the most religiously tolerant country in Europe. They wanted to advance the Gospel to new lands.

    I beg to differ, the federal government since the founding gave non-sectarian support of Christianity right up till about the 1950’s. I believe our institutions have only been secularized since the 40’s and 50’s. Non- sectarian is not secular.
