Is the US a Christian nation? If you surveyed church goers, most would say that we are a majority Christian nation. However, there are millions of Americans who profess another faith or no faith at all. I think that we can gauge how Christian a nation we are by how we treat non-Christians. The US Constitution, under the first amendment, specifies that there will be no established, state sponsored, religion. The oath of allegiance and our currency contain “under God“, but do not specify whose God, the Christian God or another religion’s. Part of our current problems in the US, IMHO, is that one party, the GOP, wants to take back the country. By that they mean take back the country to a time when minorities knew their place, there were fewer people of color, one bread-winner in a family was sufficient and when there were fewer members of other religions within the US.
