    Today's the day Christians believe Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead, and 78% of Americans share that belief.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 10% don't believe Christ rose from the dead, and another 11% are not sure.
    That means nothing really.

    Majority of UK do not visit church and a significant amount do not believe in God yet UK is a Christian country because we have a established religion for the country and the foundation is based heavily on Christianity.
    The United States is a country with a Christian majority yes but it's foundations is secular.

    A large number of them were, however. This does not mean that a number of them were not deists, but what happens a great deal is people oversimplify the early years

    Eventually the EU as well as the USA will become Islamic.
    The reason is because those of the Islamic faith breed far more children than do those of other faiths.

    I seem to draw people in who feel bent to "save me". I don't know why, there is no logic to it.. they just seem to zero in on me. I've tried the angle you mention and that seems to drive them more. Do I look like a sinner? Do I exude an air of 'wrongness' that nobody senses but those who are ultra-religious? I don't know and I don't care. I just know that when someone offers to have me visit their church and I decline.. that is a clue that they need to remove themselves from my property - period.

    Maybe the sight of me naked answering the door would shock them and send the message "leave me the eff alone!".
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    52 out of the 55 signers of the 'Declaration of Independence' were Orthodox, deeply committed Christians. All of these founding fathers left behind quotes and writings that are chocked full of Christian beliefs.

    Patrick Henry

    "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great Nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here."

    Actually I found only one way to get them to leave me alone. When asked if I wanted a free Bible I responded, "Sure. But only if it has that Virgin Mother's number in it. She gave the best bj I ever had."
