RE: The US is not a Christian Nation.
Also, one can easily see how, "In God we Trust", "Under God" and all the other crap like it, are direct violations of the 1st Amendment. Both of these abominations to freedom were the result of Congressional Acts, yet the Constitution clearly states:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;...."
In addition, if they were founding a "Christian Nation", isn't odd that they would insert this into Article 6?:
"The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
