I've read hundreds of times America is a Christian Nation , and was founded that way.
It sounds good , but evidence suggests otherwise ; that the Founding Fathers (another over-used term) went out of their way to make sure it was NOT !
Why ? Because these astute gentlemen had centuries of adverse experience with the intertwining of Church and State, and knew it was a very bad idea.
Don't believe it ? Take it from Jefferson and Madison themselves !
