    No, it won't. But some of us hope it does.

    There is nothing culturally christian about our nation. Everything about this Nation contradicts God's will and teachings. Maybe once upon a time... sure. But in this modern era, no.

    You're just trying to disenfranchise Christians from the fabric of American culture.

    I don't know what you're trying to do, I'm assessing what you are actually doing. Belittling the contribution of the Bible to US culture, and thereby Christians to US culture and even ethnicity, is blind unjust discriminatory rage.

    A nation is defined by it's government and it's people - not only by it's majority. To refer to it as A Christian Nation is to falsely represent many Americans.

    Our Country grants freedom for all religions and lack thereof. Grand Cathedrals, churches, Temples, Mosques, and Conventions for Non Believers can be found all over this country. All of which are given equal respect and right to exist.
    Religion in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Our Government and thus our laws are entirely secular. There are a vast array of laws that directly contradict the teachings in the bible and thus God's will (i.e. laws regarding homosexuals, divorce, and other things considered blasphemous). Making the term "Christian Nation" ever more strange and obviously misplaced.

    There is no legitimate reason to refer to this Nation as Christian.
    That is interesting. Are you now stating that the standard that you erected in order to declare Uganda a Christian Nation is illegitimate?


    How can something be "entirely" secular when there are obvious counterexamples, such as Blue Laws, the existence of an office of Congressional Chaplain, etc.? Do you not mean to say that the vast majority of laws are not intended to enforce specifically Christian teachings?

    Too bad you are wrong on all accounts.

    If the contribution you are referring to is slavery, subjugation of women, intolerance of homosexuals and a whole slue of other despicable laws - then yes I as an African American Homosexual just may be diminishing it indeed. Without a shred of guilt while doing so.

    Jesus, like the Hermes Trismegistus taught 'as above so below, as below so above.' Many monuments in DC have reflecting pools or are by water to illustrate this ancient concept: Try Washington Monument, Capitol building among others. Also, the vestibule of the Library of Congress has the same emblem on the ceiling and the floor below it to illustrate the same. Jesus was teaching the Ancient Egyptian mystery religion. So, you might be surprised at what you find in DC if you took the time to look for it. The words inscribed on the top of the Washington Monument are "Laus deo" which mean 'praise be to God.' Here is a list of religious symbols in DC which I simply do not want to copy, but you are free to read them:

    Mixing religion and politics: Faith symbols tucked into power capital

    It can be denied until kingdom come. The symbology of our capitol says this is a nation that honors God.
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.
