So, because nothing is absolute you win? Nonsense. You're strawmanning your opponent's position.I am arguing against those that are claiming that because nothing is absolute, my argument is invalid.
No one is claiming the US is absolutely a Christian nation.
I honestly think that might be happening...I might be as well. This wouldn't be the second time we've argued the same position against each other.
How many people in the polls that identify as Christian in America actually go to church and actually follow their so called good book? There is plenty of data that says that religion is on the decline in the US.
lets look at that majority that you keep pointing at. It turns out that it isnt a straight 70% something Christians its about 50% something Christians and 20% something Catholics. i have been to many Christian churches in my years and all of them made a distinction between themselves and those Catholics and their Saints. Dont forget about Mormons and Jehovah's. I have heard a plenty sermon about those guys, it wasnt pretty either. Christians get all anal about the false gods thing etc.
Is Roman Catholicism Christian? | Are Catholics Christians? | Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry "No, Roman Catholicism and Christianity are not the same thing. ...... So, even though Roman Catholicism claims to be Christian and that it is the one true church, it violates the essentials of the Christian faith. It goes beyond what is written in God's word (1 Cor. 4:6). It denies the sole and true sovereignty of the living God by promoting prayer to and the worship of Mary. Also, it denies justification by faith alone in Christ alone. It is not a Christian church."
But really it isnt the majority claim that I argue against. There are a **** of a lot of Christian's in the US we all admit this and know it. My argument disputes a claim that all those Christians actually makes us a Christian Nation. It comes done to what circles that one travels in. If you go looking for Christian crap you will find it. But I have found that it is rather easy to avoid Christian crap even in a county that is heavily religious. When I drive down the road its only the church signs that remind me of Christianity, literally everywhere else is void of any religious content (save the religious nut that put signs in his front yard). You would think that if this was indeed a Christian Nation then one would find it in every facet of society. People would great each other with Christian crap whether they were actual Christians or not. There should be Jesus statures in every park on every corner or at least one in each town.
