USA is NOT a Christian Nation!

I am a tolerant individual. I love hearing people’s beliefs until they start trying to erase fact and history to coincide with their belief. You cannot erase a historic fact just because you don’t want to agree with it. The United States of America is NOT a Christian Nation and was never to be a Christian Nation.

“Amendment 1 – FREEDOM OF RELIGION, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791. Note

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

We are free to express or not express any religious beliefs. Our country was supposed to be the tolerant one. Promoting the land of the free and home of the brave.

Regarding the Pledge of allegiance:

Original Text: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Text AFTER 1954: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands; one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

I am an American Citizen. I will say the ORIGINAL pledge of allegiance.

One thought on “USA is NOT a Christian Nation!

  1. “The general principles, on which the Fathers achieved independence, were the only Principles in which that beautiful Assembly of young Gentlemen could Unite, and these Principles only could be intended by them in their address, or by me in my answer. And what were these general Principles? I answer, the general Principles of Christianity, in which all these Sects were United: And the general Principles of English and American Liberty, in which all those young Men United, and which had United all Parties in America, in Majorities sufficient to assert and maintain her Independence.” – John Adams, in his letter to Thomas Jefferson

    Saying that the United States is not founded on the Christian Religion – by which, if you look at the Treaty of Tripoli, he means that the US does not mandate Christianity in the way that England did – does not mean that the US was not founded on Christian principles or took as its driving force the impact and prevalence of the Christian worldview as the means by which it derived its views on justice and liberty which establish the basis for its independence and identity as a nation.

    “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” – The Declaration of Independence

    That declaration goes on to appeal both to the “supreme Judge of the world” and “divine providence” in justifying the separation from Britain.

    Simply put, it is beyond argument that Christianity was the driving worldview which shaped the basis for our nation’s principles and laws, justified our rejection of tyranny and the pursuit of independence, and established the foundation out of which our nation was built. That we do not impose religion and allow the freedom to worship (or not worship) as one so chooses is, itself, an expression of those very ethics.
