  • Christianized. It's just a part of the world. And marginally Christianized these days.

  • Some of the founders where traditions Christians. Others were publicly NOT CHRISTIAN--but Deists instead. Thomas Jefferson, for example, actually criticized the Bible and even alleged it could have been written by Satan. However, he did believe in a God but one that he frequently had to elaborate on. (Deism is the belief that nature and God are synonymous.)

We are a secular nation.

No nation can really be "Christian" because only individuals can be Christian. I say we're Christianized because we have based a lot of our societal principals on Christian values.

Traditions = traditional

What many Americans fail to understand today is that many of America's Founding Fathers were influenced by the Age of Enlightenment, which was an age that promoted reason and scolded superstition--many thinkers in this time accepted Deism, which is the belief that God can only be revealed in nature. This included several founding fathers, including the primary writer of the Declaration of Independence, who called the God depicted in the Bible a "demon".

We mostly likely have had a not christian president. Probably atheist but they would never admit to that in front of a camera

In order to be a "christian nation" we would have to be a Christian moralist state, which we aren't.

Atheist-independent, is that a double negative?

It seems like it :P
Skynet says2014-12-23T19:20:15.6559841-06:00
The Deists didn't scold superstition and the supernatural to the point of atheism.

Clearly we are a christian nation 90% of people in the country believe in the real god, not allah, not buddha, none of those fake gods, the one true god.
SamStevens says2014-12-23T21:53:44.8509017-06:00
How come other gods are false?

One of the main aims of secularism in nations is it seeks to give equality to all of its citizens without decisive religious inequalities. The U.S constitution does not mention a God, in fact, article 6 and the first amendment sought to separate religion from government altogether. In conclusion, its not a christian nation, its not even a religious nation; its a nation of many faiths and none.

Well, demographically speaking, yes. America is overwhelmingly Christian.

With Christian ideals and references.
