    I think when I grew up as a kid in the 1950's, the United States was very much a Christian Nation and had been since before in inception. Sometime in the 1960's I think we started moving away from being such. That momentum over time has picked up speed and today it seems more and more people are bashing Christianity than ever before. The USSR or Russia before it was indeed a Christian nation before Lenin and Stalin and communism. Back in my day we looked upon the USSR as a godless nation which persecuted its Christians. I do not think Syria or Red China ever could qualify in any remote sense of being Christian. Although Islam is an off shoot of Christianity as Christianity is an off shoot of Judaism. All three are deeply related. All three have the same god.

    China was rooted in Confucianism, perhaps Taoism and Buddhist philosophy along with other minor types of religions. Red China was never close to being a Christian Nation and outside of a few missionaries and a few churches, that was it. I think the countries of Europe, Central and South America would qualify as being more Christian as nations goes than the U.S. now.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I'm to young for the USSR, but it think it all depends on your definition of christian. Celebrating christmas is also something many atheists and agnostics do, but it does not mean they are christian if they still deny christ.

    Re: Which was more Christian nation - USA or USSR?

    I think the answer to this question depends on how you define "christian nation", firstly.

    And secondly, what span of time you use to measure a nation's "christianness".



    On another note, biased poll is biased, because you know damn well that Syria and China cannot possibly even be considered as choices for such a question.

    That leaves the US and the USSR. And we can eliminate the USSR because, however it's people believed personally, and despite whatever outward appearances of Christianity might have been displayed by it's leadership (can't recall any), there is NO chance that the leadership of the USSR seriously considered factoring christian values into their decision-making processes.

    Lastly, I'm personally of the opinion that it would be foolish to even consider the USA a "Christian nation". It's a damn sight closer than any of your other options though.

    Stupidity said. U.S. founded as a Christian country, on the basis of Christian morality. In which the separation of church and state. But the country is Christian, despite the fact here can live and prosper people of other religions.

    I'm not so sure about the US being a "christian nation", but I do think that at least the leadership of the USSR was anti-religion.

    It WAS, I am only pointing out the hypocrisy, and I explained before why I am convinced that both systems USA and USSR were controlled by the same criminal industry.

    Not at all.

    That is your opinion completely devoid of logic, proof, of any facts at all.

    If you can prove your international crime theory, I will happily concede, but I ain't holding my breath.

    The USA was not founded as a christian country. In fact, most of our founders weren't even christian. They were deists and atheists. The founders were explicit that the US was not a christian nation.

    "As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims],—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Mohammedan] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries."

    I don't see any comparison. Read only the red print of Jesus' words from the bible and see what you think. It is evident he would have distained all, but hated most the hypocrites, and that nation is evidently the United States.

    Regardless what we tell ourselves, I would have to say that Jesus if he returned today would agree with the Ayatollahs...America is the great Satan.
