    You are talking about a belief and opinion, not fact. You are also demonstrating the appeal to popularity logical fallacy. It used to be that the majority of people thought the earth was flat. They were uninformed then, just like the 78% are uniformed now. So, that about destroys your "poll" theory. Got anything else?

    We are a Christian Nation, And 78% are in unison of the fact. This is a democracy and in a democracy the majority rules.
    Actually the U.S. is a Republic, and primarily so that your sort of argument isn't allowed.

    And no, we are not a Christian nation. Christian laws do not govern our citizens.
    Christian laws govern this nation. This nation was built on Christian law and not much has changed since. The founding fathers were Christians that welcomed all religions. The US government has always been dominated by Christians and still is today, and will be tomorrow.

    Christian laws do not govern this nation. Many ideas of right and wrong came about before the bible. Not all the founding fathers were christian let alone the congregationalist christians that exist today. As for you 52 out of 55 number. This is a number bandied about by Wallbuilders to talk about the signers of the declaration of independence. The number is rather suspicious considering there were 56 signers. More revisionist history

    Which would imply that this isn't a Christian nation.

    The UK is a representative democracy. We're less ruled by democracy than that. A concept which, more often than not I'm thankful for.
