    I think the first thing we're going to do is mandate days off for PMS.

    It's always been a female nation(seriously). The Vietnam war didn't kill you all off.

    I hear ya Pony. I don't think anyone is denying that our founding father's faiths were, by a huge margin, christian oriented.

    But that's not what me and some of our other collegues here are debating.

    I think I can clear that up for everyone, speaking a language, everyone will clearly understand.

    The majority choice of faith in the US, now, and historically, has always been Christianity. In that respect, as far as the majority rule premise dictates, one may correctly infer that we are a christian populace. Further, I would bet a dollar to a donut that we shall always remain a "christian nation" in that respect. (Americans are smart that way. )

    But FIRST, in order to proclaim to officially be a "christian nation" legitimately, we would have to first establish that the nation was created to be a nation that constitutionally endorsed the religion of christianity. And, it clearly did not. In fact, great lengths were attempted to make it very clear that the nation shall make no laws in regard to religion and state and church shall always remain seperate.

    Perhaps we're all just debating for the sake of debate. But, at the end of the day, it just back and forth over semantics.

    We have to agree on the definition of "nation" I suppose.

    We can all agree on the following. (Or, at least, the more knowlegable of us can.)

    1. Christianity is the favored faith of the people living in the nation of the United States.
    2. The United States, (a nation,) by design, is secular and does not "officially" endorse any diety or religion over another.

    Now that that's all settled, anyone wanna join me for a beer? Or communion? I'm cool with wine too!
