At the request of Ray Rose, I investigated some American history in order to discover our Christian heritage. I found the Treaty of Tripoli of 1797, which in part states that "as the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion. …" This treaty was passed unanimously by the Senate, signed into law by John Adams and printed in some newspapers of the day to no great upheaval.
Some people would like to see our government promote Christianity, but why would we want this to happen? So that politicians can sing "God Bless America" in order to gain the reputation of being just while in private being unjust? So that officials can pervert Scripture in order to justify their own prejudices, to appear wise when they are not? Or is it that the claims of some people's version of Christianity cannot pass scrutiny, and so school children must be intimidated at a young age into pretending they believe those claims?
