    You can use the term nation to define any government regulated land of a group of people. How you define that nation is more than just Majority wins. Israel has an official religion. It enforces laws and a culture that is centered around that. That's the distinction.

    Religion in Israel is a central feature of the country and plays a major role in shaping Israeli culture and lifestyle, and religion has played a central role in Israel's history.

    ... and it is not a fact because I say it is a fact... but it is a fact none the less.
    No it's not. Not at all.

    I disagree, and it isn't a fact. If the nation is the people than this can't be a Christian nation not all the people are Christian. All you can say is that it is a majority Christian nation.

    That's absurd.

    Would you call the United States a "Male Nation" or a "Male Dominated Nation" or a "Predominantly Male-Centric Nation"?

    I'm not sure, if anything I'd say the third one. Simply because many of the values in our country are male centric, but that's changing. I believe our nation is a Progressive Nation or a Nation that is changing.

    I'm in the "no" camp.

    There is no question that Christianity is an important part of US history. But since we cannot have an official state religion, it's not a "Christian nation," in the same way that Islam is the official religion of Saudi Arabia.

    An eyewitness report? What, did he resurrect too? He should totally found a new religion and write a NT 2.0 and claim to be god then. You should become his Paul and write a Romans 2.0 also since your whole argument for the bible's legitimacy seems to be "You can't bust the resurrection!" Oh, and we can all celebrate Christmas 2 and get more presents then and a day off work! I hope his birthday was in February. One less day to go in during those dreary midwest winters.

    Nicaragua had a female president in its first ever election back in 1990, while the US media and public is always pondering if this country is ready for a female prez with Hillary running. Changing perhaps, progressive...not so much.
