    America is a Christian Nation

    America is a Christian Nation

    When President Obama said we are not a Christian Nation, evidently he doesn't understand the founding of our Country, or is it just wishful thinking?

    The Muslim calendar is not dated from the birth of Christ, but from the year in which Muhammad emigrated from Mecca to Medina, the journey known as the Hijra. For Muslim nations, the system is Anno Hegirae ("in the year of the Hijra"). For Muslims, the current year is 1432 AH. So in Arab countries, the current year is not 2010 AD (after the death of our Lord), it's the year 1432AH.

    Because they are not Christian nations.

    On our currency we have “In God We Trust”

    Every time you date a check, pick up a newspaper, or pull a dollar from your wallet in the United States, you bear witness to the spiritual origins of our country.

    America is a Christian nation.

    Republican President Abraham Lincoln in dedicating the military cemetery at Gettysburg said, "we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain--that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom--and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

    Matthew 24-9 “ye shall be hated of all Nations for my name’s sake”

    When I went to school we started everyday with the Lord’s Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance.

    The Demoralization of America is a plan not an accident.

    This is part of what you had posted in another thread...and it still rings true!

    "The problems we face in this America and Western Society in general.
    We have raised a generation of weak minded people.
    People who have nothing better to do than to look to how the whole world has hurt their feelings.
    People who are constantly looking for a fight, seeking to silence anyone who does not accept every view as valid."


    Even when it goes against everything our country was founded on...

    If "AD" is after death...what is "BC"?

    I think you have some years mixed up...and acronyms...

    *hint: anno domini*

    1st Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.

    "Founded" and "is" are different. The country was founded by believers, but the country isn't any specific religion.

    I believe this is what our country was founded on!

    If you do not believe the same....that is your choice.

We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” [1778 to the General Assembly of the State of Virginia]

    Yes. I believe our calendar starts with the birth, not the death, of Christ.

    Chen: The abbreviations mean: A.D.: Anno Domini, a specified year of the Christen Era, after the birth of Christ; B. C.: Years before birth of Christ; and now B.C.E.: Before Common Era, used especially by non-Christians in these latter days.

    I know I was hoping they would figure it out...

    Then they should have documented that, but since they didn't it is clear they were concerned about freedom from England than their beliefs.

    The SCOTUS continues to tell believers that they do NOT have the right to impose their beliefs upon others, even if it is in your rule book. Slaves, women's rights, racism, inter-racial marriage, SSM, all from the bible, all struck down by the courts interpretation of the Constitution.
