    I get it. You're just mincing words. We are a nation whose majority of the population happens to be Christian. That is not how I or most people would define a Nation as being Christian. Most would define that as being a Nation where Christianity is the law of the land... and since we know it's not, this would be a false statement.

    Good to see you defined your terms.

    Majority of religion means nothing. Saddam Hussein ran a secular Iraq while his country was majority muslim. As for christmas it was not an official hoiliday until after the civil war. It seems our founding fathers didnt take christmas that seriously.

    If this isn't a Christian nation then why is 76% of America Christian?

    If this isn't a Christian nation then why is there over 250,000 Christian churches in America?

    If this isn't a Christian nation then why has the US government always been dominated by Christians employees?

    If this isn't a Christian nation then why were the founding fathers Christian?

    If this isn't a Christian nation then why is it that you take advantage of the Christian holidays (Christmas)?

    ??
    That is not a Christian Nation, that is a nation with a lot of Christians in it.

    There is an actual difference.

    Are we a Right-Handed Nation?

    Good to see you defined your terms.
    We're either a land of Muslims or a land of Crusaders. There is no gray area between the two. This is a Crusading nation and the entire planet is well aware of this. Our military is nothing more than modern day Crusaders. Crusaders are Christians.

    It is what it is...

    [quote=PonyBoy;1058673465]I've been showing evidence of a Christian America and i think it is YOU that should be proving other wise. You're the one that's in denial, not me.

    Because of the law.

    If this isn't a Christian nation then why is there over 250,000 Christian churches in America?
    Variation of the first question. Because of the law.

    If this isn't a Christian nation then why has the US government always been dominated by Christians employees?
    Because the probability curve that Christian employees will be public servants in a nation where a majority of the public are Christian is high.

    If this isn't a Christian nation then why were the founding fathers Christian?
    Some of them were Unitarians or deists.

    If this isn't a Christian nation then why is it that you take advantage of the Christian holidays (Christmas)?
    I would say non-Christian Americans appropriate Christian holidays for their own purposes. For them, Christmas is time off and an opportunity to visit family and friends they wouldn't otherwise see.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    We are a nation that was created by Christians and reflects Christian values. We aren't a Christian theocracy, but we are a Christian nation.
