    The United States has a strict church state seperation, even you would know that no?
    Christianity is not the definiting feature of US, It's Constitution is. Oh and seeing i just finished a 2 year study into the US political system, i assure you i know something

    Should i be worried a American has deluded himself into thinking US was founded on a religion?
    Repeating liberal talking points does not mean you know anything about the founding of this country. One letter from Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists does not make a founding principle, neither does some treaty.

    I give a day until the Muslim sleeper cell theory comes back up again.

    Again you misunderstand. Making quotes does not demonstrate an understanding.

    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.

    Re: "We do not consider ourselves a christian nation", says Obama

    While I understand where Pres. Obama is coming from with his remarks, I think he would have been better understood and his words more readily accepted had he said something along the lines of "...while this country has a majority Christian following, we're not just a nation of Christians any more than we are a nation of Jews, Protestants, Catholics or Jews, but rather we are a nation founded under a Constitution that allows for freedom of religion..." and took it from there.

    Of course, those who want to see him fall on his face will certainly try to twist his words around much as what's already happening with his comments concerning his familiarity w/the Muslin religion.
