    It is ridiculous to say this is not a Christian nation.......
    Where on our money does it say "Christ"?

    Do we pledge allegiance to one country under Christ?

    Where in the lobby of the Supreme Court does in mention Christianity?

    And you are DEAD WRONG about a Christian minister saying prayer every morning in congress. They use a variety of prayers.

    So once again...Navy....you are wrong.

    It is completely and utterly ridiculous to try to claim that this is a "Christian Nation" when the very defining documents of our Country clearly state the opposite.

    He's never let being completely wrong and proven so stop him before, so why are you expecting a different result now?

    Christians, Jews, and Muslims share the same God. God on our currency wasn't uniform until the 1950s. The pledge added under God in the 1950's as well. It does not say Christian GOD. Also the US Constitution goes out of its way not to say God or Christ in it.

    What are you talking about with the lobby of the SCOTUS?

    [QUOTE=Navy Pride;1058668277]Contrary to what many of our left wing friends believe:

    78% Think Jesus Christ Rose from the Dead

    /QUOTE]

    Doesn't necessarily mean they think. It could be what they learned from their parents, sibs or peers.

    Yes, I am reading it. You do understand what racism was like in the 60s, right? Do you really think it's as bad as then?

    We are no more a Christian nation than the PRC is a "Buddhist nation".

    We are a Christian Nation, And 78% are in unison of the fact. This is a democracy and in a democracy the majority rules.

    78% believe Jesus Christ rose from the dead, not 78% believe America is a Christian nation. Don't be purposefully obtuse.

    And no, we are not a Christian nation. Christian laws do not govern our citizens.
