America isn't all Christian and it's not a theocracy or even close.
But it IS a Christian Nation in Character founded by Bible Reading but enlightened men.
And it is also in the context of of how that description is used today internationally/coloquially.
The above acknowledgment despite the fact I'm an atheist.
Calling America 'Christian' is just a true characterization, not a statement of faith.

I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
There are many other religions in out country all of which are given equal respect and autonomy (with the context of our secular laws) and freedom to exist.
This also includes those who do not believe.
Our government does not favor nor legislate in accordance to christian beliefs, in fact as of late is has continuously ruled in favor of secular laws that many Christians are appalled by seeing as the laws offend their moral standards.
Our culture is not Christian at all.
So if we go back to my point - Why I think nation I think culture and what can be seen as commonly accepted by the people. The things we accept here in out country on a grand scale are numerous and far far away from what the bible says a society should be doing.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
