    Actually, that not the case. Look at many of our laws and court rulings which have been designed to protect the rights of the minorities. What do you think the civil rights of the 1960's was about?

    You have yet to acknowledge the obvious fact that you are defining "Christian Nation" differently than everyone else. THAT is what is going on here, and THAT is what you are doing differently. It is now seeming that you are doing so to, in an underhanded way, use this thread to profess your hatred of Islam. All that is equivalent to trolling. You have been warned twice. That's all you will be warned.

    NP, the premise of this thread has already been debunked, The definition of "Christian Nation" is being used differently than it is normally used. Are many of our laws based on Christian values? Yes. Are the majority of folks in the US Christian? Yes. Does that make this a Christian Nation? In the way this term is usually defined, NO.

    No it's not about "hating Islam". I've only mentioned Islam twice in this entire thread. Why would i use this thread to profess my "hatred of Islam" when I was planning on starting an Islamist thread anyways...

    You're not fooling anyone, PonyBoy.

    No, you are STILL getting it wrong. The majority of Americans may be Christian, but that does not translate into the majority of Americans defining Christian Nation in the unusual way that you do. Give it another try.

    Being the majority why would they need you to speak on their behalf?

    So what you're telling me is that even though the majority of America is Christian they wouldn't dare define America as a Christian nation?
