Wasn't the whole point of America to ensconce the separation of church and state?
Does that not imply that America is, by design, NOT a Christian country?
Because, technically, it certainly isn't. There are very few theocracies left in the world these days and most of them harbour terrorists hell-bent
on destroying America.
And in reality, it can't be. America is a melting pot. It's an experiment in democracy where people have the right to freedom of thought and speech
and are not held back by caste, creed, or color. Whether or not the experiment is succeeding or failing is a matter of opinion, but if you accept the
above statement then you simply can't call America anything as broad as 'Christian'. It's set up to prevent that sort of thing, in other words.
But in terms of human spirit, I would argue that America is very much a Christian nation when it strives to be a land where people can live free of
oppression and treat each other as equals in the spirit of freedom. Religion aside, this is exactly the sort of place I would see the Jesus of the
Bible wanting us all to live.
