UPDATED: The widely-held, yet absurd notion that the United States of America was never a Christian nation can only be believed if you are (a) ignorant of history, (b) if you are too stupid or too lazy to look, and/or (c) if you’re just an evil jack-rear (altered from the original). But don’t take my word for it. Let’s look directly to the United States Supreme Court Records.
And Mr. Atheist, stick this in your pipe and smoke it…
Vidal v. Girard’s Executors (1844): The Court produced a ruling which said, “Christianity is not to be maliciously and openly reviled and blasphemed against, to the annoyance of believers or the injury of the public.” The Court’s decision asked the question, “Where can the purest principles of morality be learned so clearly or so perfectly as from the New Testament?”
Holy Trinity v. United States (1892): The Supreme Court cited document after document from American history and concluded, “There is no dissonance in these declarations. There is a universal language pervading them all, having one meaning; they affirm and reaffirm that this is a religious nation.” The ruling states bluntly, “This is a Christian nation.”
United States v. Macintosh (1931): The Supreme Court declared, “We are a Christian people…according to one another the equal right of religious freedom, and acknowledging with the reverence the duty of obedience to God.”
Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black was also a member of the KKK, but the secular left says Christians just bring this up to ‘make him look bad.’
It was not until 1947 in Everson v. Board of Education, the United States Supreme Court for the first time in history, ruled against Christianity, erecting an imaginary “wall of separation” between church and state. Supreme Court Justice, former member of the Ku Klux Klan and all around Godless Jackass Hugo Black, author of the decision, stated, “We could not approve the slightest breach” of that separation. This astonishingly arrogant 1947 Supreme Court overturned not one Supreme Court ruling, but a minimum of THREE previous rulings…and at least one of which was a UNANIMOUS DECISION (1844).
And the attack on America’s Christian heritage was under way….
Why do you think our Founding Fathers placed ‘freedom of religion’ in the First Amendment?
Judge for yourself…where’s the wall? ….. READ MORE

nor morality without faith.”
