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?

Christin--I don't care for coconut, but I do like your analogy.
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.
Well said, TZ. The founders wanted to prevent any single religion from controlling the government. They believed in the ability of the people to make decisions based on reason.
So far that has been tested and what do you have today, hunger in nations of people ,What about the earth being polluted and the animals suffering also, man has only proved to be a bad landlord of this earth,the I can do it ,has lead to nuclear doom
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."
The founding principles of America are the Bill of Right and "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness--show thw christian principle.
What you are saying is an example you have people that are atheist but they believe in love. And yet it is written in the bible that God is love.
Which proves that God is stronger then man knows .
Kiss--If you are speaking of the NT, love or the feeling of love predates the NT by tens of thousands of years, so one might conclude that love was plagiarized by Catholics, the first Christians.
No one can plagiarize love. So it would be fitting to say you plagiarized yours for your family. Then it would not be real.
Kiss--I never made the claim that a sense of love (however defined) began with me. But certainly I execised it to the best of my ability.
Yes you believe in it and I certainly would not Automatically think you plagiarized anything ,certainly not your family. When I mention love ,I name no religion or faith, because love is not under any title of religion it stands on it's own.
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.
I answered your question from the bible. Since you asked about christain principles . The facts show here there is a seperation, basically because true christains would support Jesus and his heavenly Goverment, since these on earth are under satan.
