    Damned skippy. In the end, I don't even care if people call the US a "Christian nation" so long as it is a free nation.

    What is a radical? I consider anybody who spends their life believing in fairy tales from books to be a radical. Same goes for people who proudly state they are against 'anything' from another ideology. Or are we only discussing 'radical Muslims'?

    Well if they mean that the majority of people are Christians (and even on some level cultural Christians) they would be right.
    In the legal sense I do not think it is a Christian nation though.

    Like atheists who militantly and vehemently state they are against 'anything' from another ideology?

    There is radicalism among atheists too. Radicalism isn't a problem only theists have.

    Such as? Can you show us an atheist who's done such thing? I'll wait.

    Theists are definetely a lot more explosive in their radicalism, do you disagree?

    As long as anyone does not force others to follow their beliefs then anyone can be a good American provided they follow reasonable laws and regulations

    How can anyone who takes delight in the death of Americans be a good one?
