Is America Christian?

“Hodgepodge of Thoughts about early America”……………………………….A short reading ofrepparttar facts

I was listening to a news programrepparttar 132236 other night and I heard an alarming statement made by a “Reverend” who said that America was not founded as a Christian nation. I don’t know much aboutrepparttar 132237 minister’s credentials other than what was flashed acrossrepparttar 132238 screen. It seems he was a former employee ofrepparttar 132239 ACLU and was opposed to Christian emblems being placed on government property. He gaverepparttar 132240 same old song and dance about “separation of church and state” (gag me) andrepparttar 132241 need for America to sterilize her government agencies of Christian symbols. I was thinking about this absurdity this morning, and thought I would help setrepparttar 132242 record straight. America was founded on Biblical principles and has been declared Christian by its institutions of law allrepparttar 132243 way up torepparttar 132244 1950s. Let me present some facts.

Fact: Terry Eastland, publisher of The Weekly Standard, has confirmed after his in-depth study ofrepparttar 132245 history of America. “Protestant Christianity has been our established religion in almost every sense of that phrase…The establishment of Protestant Christianity was one not only of law but also, and far more importantly, of culture. Protestant Christianity suppliedrepparttar 132246 nation with its ‘system of values.’” James Billington, Liberian of Congress, said in a news conference onrepparttar 132247 opening ofrepparttar 132248 exhibit, “Religion andrepparttar 132249 Founding ofrepparttar 132250 American Republic,” that “the dominant role religion played inrepparttar 132251 earliest days of this country is largely ignored by media, academics, and others.”

Fact: In 1931repparttar 132252 U.S. Supreme Court noted thatrepparttar 132253 United States is a Christian nation. In a mid-Atlantic summit with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill inrepparttar 132254 darkest hours of World War II, President Roosevelt—who had describedrepparttar 132255 United States asrepparttar 132256 “the lasting concord between men and nations, founded onrepparttar 132257 principles of Christianity”—askedrepparttar 132258 crew of an American warship to join him in a rousing chorus ofrepparttar 132259 hymn “Onward, Christian Soldiers.” President Woodrow Wilson, in his famous address, “The Bible and Progress,” delivered in Denver, Colorado, on May 7, 1911, told his audience that, “America was born a Christian nation. America was born to exemplify that devotion torepparttar 132260 elements of righteousness which are derived fromrepparttar 132261 revelation of Holy Scripture.” I might add that President Wilson was a devout Presbyterian.

Harry,repparttar young Prince of Wales, recently dressed as a Nazi SS officer to attend a costume party. He caught hell for his foolishness and insensitivity inrepparttar 132234 British press, andrepparttar 132235 story made international headlines as well.

What makes this story ironic is that Adolf Hitler’s premise in building a “master race” hinged onrepparttar 132236 theory of eugenics –repparttar 132237 pseudo-science of improvingrepparttar 132238 human race through judicious breeding inrepparttar 132239 same way stock-keepers hybridize animals and botanists hybridize plants. Historically, royalty has such a strong history of inbreeding, with its concomitant genetic defects, that Harry andrepparttar 132240 rest ofrepparttar 132241 royals would be high on Hitler’s hit list.

Prince Harry’s heritage is showing. His father, Prince Charles, has a history of doltish behavior and has never evidenced signs of good judgment or insight. Like his son, he appears oblivious torepparttar 132242 reactions of those around him; reading any of Diana’s biographies
