It's in the constitution, but except once, it's talked about in exclusionary terms (a man will not be judged by his God, things like that), rather than in support of God. And even that one time, it doesn't specify which God.

It seems to me that allot of people (especially people from other country's) think that U.S.= Christian. I dont think this is true. Though this country was founded by men who where predominately Christian their dream was to create a place where people could worship and practice whatever way they desired uninhibited and unoppressed by the restrictions of a controlling religion. Are their people who think this is not true?

Well. There's certainly a lot of Christians here, though I doubt that makes it a Christian country. Go down south though and people'll start to get arrogant and self-righteous. Or well, here in Mormontown, too, though at least they're nice about it.

The U.S.A. isn't a Christian nation. This was early stated in the terms of a treaty with Tripoli, drafted in 1796 under George Washington, and signed by John Adams in 1797: "As the government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Musselmen; and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries." And it is conventional to assume that the Founding Fathers were deist. No doubt, many of them were and it has been argued that the greatest of them could have been atheist. And their writings on religion leave us with no doubt that most of them would have been atheist. But no matter what their view were on religion, they were all secularists and that's what the U.S.A. was founded on, secularism. The Founding Fathers were secularist who believed in keeping religion out of politics. And if you're still saying that the Founding Fathers were Christian, then let me say that Thomas Jefferson, one of the greatest presidents in history was possibly an atheist.

You've just said it a bunch of times now prove it, or do you think we will all agree with you because you called us stupid? Brilliant strategy Einstein.

Side: NO

Sadly, yes. The majority of the population is Christian, a large majority compared to western countries that have an official religion. Gods on our money, in our anthem, and needs to be on issue for every politician.

Side: YES

Considering over 80% of the country believe in the Christian dogma, yes, it is a Christian country.

Side: YES

I was going to say this, but you already did.

Good job.

although, I disagree with the idea that it actually IS a Christian nation. But yeah, it's Christian enough that most of the citizens are.

Side: YES

Who do you disagree with the idea that it is actually a Christian nation? Is there a mention that America is actually a Christian nation? No, an actual Christian nation would imply theocracy.

Side: YES

Yes our country is a Christian country. Our government is based upon Christianity. Also our founding fathers were Christian and they based the Constitution on teachings of the Bible.

Side: YES

No, the founding fathers perspective was filtered through a Christian view of the world (which was all they knew) and the constitution does have the word God in it but it dose not have the word "Christian" in it.

Explain to me how the constitution is based on the "teachings of the bible?

When you say our country is a Christian country do you mean that the majority of the religious people here practice the Christian realign or do you mean that the country belongs to Christians? Please clarify.

Side: NO

The Constitution does not mention any god.

I think you may be thinking of The Declaration of Independence, which is not a legal document.

Sorry, but our country is NOT based on Christianity. Our government is based on the Constitution, which is a secular document. Where the hell is your religion in there? It's not. So you just lied. Are you willfully ignorant?

It doesn't matter who you think was a Christian or not. In fact, some founding fathers weren't Christian. So what?

You have a lot to read... start with the Constitution, Einstein.

As in population whole, yes. The country was founded upon Christian principles. In different regions in the US you can find all kinds of dominations. US is a Christian nation, like it or not.

US sends more missionarys times three.

78% of Americans claim they are Christian.

Yes the majority of Americans are Christian. But sadly, our country is losing its values. This is mainly because of our financial problems. Everybody is losing their money because the cost of living is going up. Inflation is causing alot of problems now. The job market is so competitive that people with disabilities cant even keep a job anymore. Everything is made in China now or some other country. The National debt clock (usdebtclock.org) is higher than ever. This fine Christian country will soon collapse. Most people in this country dont act like Christians.

Yes the majority of Americans are Christian.

The majority of Americans are female. Your argument proves nothing.

I was looking forward to demolishing your argument, but you pose nothing more than this simple piece of logic.

Living in an Islamic country, I can very confidently tell you that the US' is not a religious government. For it to be, not only does the law of the bible need to be the rule of the land (which is most definitely is not), religious preachers need to be active members of all three branches of the US, in positions such as 'religious leader of the US', or 'Biblical Law analysis', and all decisions need to be first considered from a religious standpoint, which they are not. These are but three of the points that are needed, and none of them are met. So no, the US is not a Christian nation.

This is not a Christian nation, and it will never be a Christian nation. My God, people, if the founding fathers were to see what has happened with the government and its ties with religion, they would be disappointed.

Side: NO

Christmas is a Federal Holiday and the majority of the population is Christian, so, theoretically the United States is a Christian country.

Side: YES
