Before I post my first response, I need to verify your position on the idea that America is a Christian nation. I'm new here and am not able to tell your position from your profile. To be clear, I do not accept the premise that the US is a Christian nation.

To see the position of your opponent, look at the picture of them in the upper section of the debate page. I am con, meaning I oppose the statement. I am arguing that America is not a christian nation.

Well a nation should be ruled by a leader and the religion comes later. Hate me for this, I don't care, religion is ones personal choice not everyone should be made to conform to your rules of religion. If the bible wad the rulemark of the nation what about every one who isn't catholic?

By definition it cannot be a Christian nation, to be a Christian is a personnal choice no one can choose it for you

This could have been avoided had Pro read the debate challenge and made clarifications in the comments section of the debate.
