This writeup is going to be quick, because the answer to this issue is so obvious to anybody who simply looks at the fundamental documents of this nation without any bias or clouded judgment on what should-be instead of what just-is.
This writeup will almost be devoid of any sources, because to me it is nothing more than icing on the cake or adding more layers to something that should be already self-evident.
If The United States of America is a so-called “Christian Nation” then why:
Does nowhere in any of the founding documents, (Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, The Federalists, ect) does it mention even once Jesus?
Why does the Declaration of Independence refer to God as “Nature’s God,” or “Creator”? Does any Christian refer to God in such a way?
Why is the government designed to be purely secular in its structure, owning nothing into account of God, and that the workings of such a government is purely rested upon man?
If America is a Christian Nation, then why does the 1st Amendment allow for all religions and does not favor any religion over any other? It is a fact that in America that Islam, Buddhism, and Satanism is equal to Christianity in the eyes of the government.
It’s also obvious that The 1st Amendment itself contradicts Christianity, since it relegates it to merely one religion out of many that are all equal and should not interfere in the affairs of the government in any way.
That Christians say that all of mankind must profess to the faith and authority of Jesus Christ yet make an exception for government officials and all political affairs off the basis of some principle (which is non-christian) is an absurd contradiction.
That there is some odd dissonance that faith and morality is only confined to the individual in their inconsequential private life, yet these universal truths should not be carried over to the whole entirety of society like one unified faith.
That the 1st Amendment’s Freedom of Speech allows for blasphemy and libel against God and Christ as a fundamental Right is something too obvious to ignore.
Now people can make the weak argument that The People of America are christian and that it is in them that this nation is christian and not the secular government. This argument is stupid. First of all, American demographics could have been mostly christian and have lived under christian norms, but what if they or within a generation all convert to another religion? Even then this would be largely irrelevant since the government does not change and that the people of a newly converted religion are still required to obey the laws of the government. Another thing is why would a so-called christian nation’s people profess Jesus and yet not demand the government be required to do the same, but allow it to remain secular? That is a most ludicrous contradiction.
