have the idea of Separation of Church and State.
The idea that America was founded by Christianity is a myth, mostly because most of the population is Christian.

The government meddles with religion more than it was originally intended to, to the favor or disfavor according to the various people who agree or
disagree with the proposals.
Christianity is the predominant religion in the USA, and it was as well at the time of it's founding. However, the States were not intended to be
strictly Christian in practice.
