This is not to say that the Bible serves as a common reference for all Americans, but certainly the majority and always has.
In a political and legal sense, no. I think it's very clear that we have a secular legal system, with few exceptions. As far as what it should be, multiculturalism is what we should maintain as a country, with no dominant culture, because not all minds adhere to the same philosophy. In a cultural sense, I would also say no. A majority of Christians does not equal a Christian nation. We have a large Jewish, Islam, Atheist, Hindu, Buddhist, and Agnostic population, as well as other denominations.
Yeah - we have a large christian population, but I don't believe it is accurate to refer to our nation as christian.This is not to say that the Bible serves as a common reference for all Americans, but certainly the majority and always has.
America is not a Christian nation, far from it. So few things about our country are honoring to God and it only goes further and further away from the truth in culture and legality.
What America is is a country where the majority professes to be Christian. It is not, however, a Christian nation in the sense of it being a nation that honors God or lives by His principals.

Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.
That depends on context, basically how one is defining 'Christian' in nation. Culturally, yes. Theocratically, no.Yeah - we have a large christian population, but I don't believe it is accurate to refer to our nation as christian.
