    you could answer yes and no if you want to and explain the largest religion is christian but that by no means makes us a christian nation and thats a GOOD thing because it would go against our laws, rights, constitution etc.

    If people think majority is all that is needed I guess we are also a Big city nation and a WHITE nation, a lower middle class to underclass nation etc etc and anything else you can come up with, thats not what makes a nation, thats only what is inside a nation it does not NAME the nation lol
    Wait, so you're saying America was never a Christian Nation.

    I am curious, how much of the population do you believe must share a common bond to be able to be considered a nation? If its 100% would it not be true then to suggest that you're suggesting its practically realistically impossible for such thing as a "Nation" to exist as there is almost no possible way to have every member of a particular population all agreeing with one particular principle or all sharing one particular bond?

    When it has Christianity as a state religion like UK and most of Europe then it can be called a Christian country.

    No, I think he's saying that even if 100% of the population were christian, we (under the laws as they stand currently) would not be a christian nation - although we would be a nation of christians.

    That depends on how you define "Christian nation".

    As I define it, you are incorrect, and the opposite is the case.

    Our definitions apparently differ.

    How do you define it?

    However I'm beginning to reflect upon this definition and other requirements in regards to it thanks to discussions with Tucker.

    I can say however this...

    A nation is not a government.

    A nation is not a state (Though a state can be a nation).

    A nation is not a country.

    To give it the best distinction I could think for the three...

    A country is the land, a state is the government, a nation is the people.

    Even then, it would not be in my mind.

    Only if it was a theocracy would it become a "Christian nation" (or whatever religion was controlling the theocracy).

    Even the UK and Europe is not at that point.

    They may be nations that claim Christianity as a “state religion”.

    But unless Christianity controls that state, they are not a Christian nation.

    sharing a bond has you put it doesnt make it that type of nation
    you could say we are a majority nation of Christians but we are by no stretch of the imagination a christian nation
    are laws, rights, and constitution are NOT in line with Christianity nor controlled by it, never have been and never will be, therefore we are not a christian nation
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.
