Con

Ok my opponent will argue that the United States [of America] is a Christian Nation. In their acceptance, they will have the advantage priority of defining "christian nation" as i do not do so here. I will argue against this erroneous, preposterous claim. so 1st 2 rounds acceptance and definition/s allowed.

I accept your challenge. I define "Christian nation" as "a nation that has at least one Christian as a citizen".

I would have to give it some thought. It's not a subject that really interests me very much.

I might've accepted, had it not been for the requirement that arguments must be posted in a mere 24 hours. How about 72 hours instead?

Could the definition of "christian nation" be that most Americans are Christians and they politicize their christian beliefs? Or something like that?
