“This Is A Christian Nation”

America was founded as a Christian nation.

The Supreme Court of the United States said so itself in 1892.

Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of The Redeemer of mankind. It’s impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian… This is a religious people. This is historically true. From the discovery of this continent to the present hour, there is a single voice making this affirmation… we find everywhere a clear recognition of the same truth… These, and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation.

Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States,
The United States Supreme Court,
143 U.S. 457, 12 S.Ct. 511, 36 L.Ed. 226 (1892)

Statements in multiple Supreme Court opinions from the founding of the this nation until the 1940’s confirmed that this nation was founded as a Christian nation and that our Constitution and its first ten amendments are based on the Bible.

Why do you never see Supreme Court Rulings that occured before 1947?

    The court case to which you are referring was not concerned with whether or not the U.S. was a Christian Nation; rather, the case was decided based on the assumption that Congress, whose representatives were mostly Christian affiliated, would not prevent Christian ministers from abroad serving for the Church and vice versa.

  3. Say what you will, but your opinions cannot change what the Supreme Court said in clear language in their decision:

    “Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of The Redeemer of mankind. It’s impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian.”

  5. When it comes to the Founders and the Constitution, David Barton knows orders of magnitude more than Jon Stewart.

    Jon Stewart threw every straw man (that his staff gave him on note cards) that he could at David Barton, and Barton knocked every single one of those straw men down. Barton has spent decades studying thousands of primary source documents. Stewart has spent minutes, possibly hours, studying the note cards his staff gave him. It was no contest. Every time Stewart threw a false accusation at Barton, Barton countered with the truth. And every time, Stewart would interrupt Barton’s answer. Stewart could only crack a joke or change the subject; he couldn’t have a straight-up discussion of the truth.

    I would love to see a similar discussion between David Barton and “Constitutional Law” lecturer Barack Obama.

    When it comes to the Founders and the Constitution, David Barton knows orders of magnitude more than Barack Obama.
