Well, it looks like the USA is a christian nation after all! Just look at all these quotes:

“Christianity neither is, nor ever was a part of the common law.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise.” – James Madison

“All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.” – Thomas Paine

“The government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion.” – Treaty of Tripoli

“If I could conceive that the general government might ever be so administered as to render the liberty of conscience insecure, I beg you will be persuaded, that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against the horrors of spiritual tyranny, and every species of religious persecution.” – George Washington

“No religious doctrine shall be established by law.” -Elbridge Gerry

“In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own.” – Thomas Jefferson

“No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” – The US Constitution

“The civil rights of none shall be abridged on account of religious belief or worship, nor shall any national religion be established, nor shall the full and equal rights of conscience be in any manner or on any pretext infringed.” – James Madison

“Denominated a Deist, the reality of which I have never disputed, being conscious that I am no Christian.” – Ethan Allen

Oh, nevermind.
