1. The USA wasn't meant to be a Christian nation

First of all, the Constitution doesn't say anywhere that the USA is a Christian nation. In fact, Article VI bans having a "religious test" to become president. If the USA was meant to be a Christian nation, Article VI wouldn't exist. (A)

2. The USA was forced to be a Christian nation in the early to middle 20th century
