    Re: Does it matter if we a christian nation?

    Some people need a super power to believe in during times of stress and indecision. Christainity is the most convenient. It saved my oldest daughter's life, so it could save others. Desperation is the key word, if you need a fantasy figure to believe in, go for it.

    Do you know what sarcasm is? Maybe if you were intelligent, you would.
    My statement was sarcasm.

    I do know. You were obviously being sarcastic. Perhaps I was as well, genius.

    I doubt it would change much. If anything, it might even make us less religious. I read an interesting article years ago about how state-sponsored religion in Europe has lead to a less religious populace. Even religion benefits from competition.

    The State Constitutions are...Unconstitutional?
    by Dave Miller, Ph.D.


    The claim that the Founders and Framers of America, with its constitutions of government, intended “separation of church and state” will surely go down in history as one of the premiere myths of our day (organic evolution ranking near the top as well).

    The truth is that the Founders intended for God and Christianity, with its critical principles of morality, to remain woven into the fabric of public life—including our civil government, public schools, and community at large. Proof of this observation abounds. For example, consider the state constitutions. Of the 50 present state constitutions, 46 have “preambles.” And 45 of those 46 preambles make explicit, even passionate, appeals to the God of the Bible! Here they are in alphabetical order (see “U.S. State...,” 2003):

    Two things:

    1. A preamble is not a portion of law
    2. States are free to address god if they like. This has NOTHING to do with the federal government.

    One thing;

    Context.

    The preambles (and the consensus required to get them ratified with their perspective Constitutions at the time) prove that this nation was in fact deliberately established as a "Christian Nation." The context of the preables quoted are undeniable.

    Since most Christians are Catholic this should be a Catholic Nation.
