    Our laws are based off of Christian morality too... put it all together. Just because it is not AS Christian as before does not negate the Christianity that permeates our culture and nation. And most of the things in the Bible that condemn things like homosexuality are Old Testament. Christianity is based off of forgiveness and acceptance.
    What laws are based on christian morality?

    And? See how this works is you need to make a statement provide context and then try to make a point. What you seem to be saying is because 20 states have legalized homosexual marriage, that somehow proves something. Tell me, what do you think that proves?

    I'm saying that the culture here is no where near the teaching of christ. Therefore this nation is not christian. simple.

    I was wrong about the holidays, however so far I've seen nothing but you opinion on why you think this nation is Christian, nothing factual or demonstrable. Especially since our culture contradicts it's teachings in many ways as do our laws.

    Who are you to judge what is within or not the teachings of Christ? Because some individuals are not Christians or act in ways that sometimes do not coincide with the Bible does not invalidate the US is a Christian nation and a majority self identify as a Christian. What you judge them to be is your opinion. You base that opinion on nothing substantial so far, though I'm hoping you surprise me.

    So I post the post above... others about marriage, funerals and cemetery's. About the holidays. About the Old Testament and Jesus's Christianity based off of forgiveness and acceptance. About the Protestant Work Ethic and whatever else I evidenced that shows that Christianity permeates American culture and you want to nit pick about laws...? One thing? I am not going to get to into it as you just deny everything other than to say that Christianity sets out a certain morality and that our laws have a historic parallel between the Church's teachings and laws that were adopted into Common Law and eventually into the Constitution (the USA also has Common Law). The fact that other religions parallel many of these morality's and laws is irrelevant to the fact that they are Christian morals and laws in the United States.
