Is the US a Christian nation? If you read the constitution and other writings available at the time of the founding of the nation, the answer is quite simple: No. I suspect that if we could go back and ask the founders this same question, their answer would be “absolutely not.”

So, what in the world happened? Why do we have “In God We Trust” on our money? Why is “under God” included in our pledge? Why is “In God We Trust” displayed in the House of Representatives?

I argue that none of these things are actually constitutional. The words and the reasoning behind them were never meant to unite anyone and have actually caused the US to be like all of the other countries in the world where religious differences cause division, hate, and violence.

If we have any hope of the US remaining a vibrant nation ruled by law and not religion, we need to embrace our founding documents and completely remove religion from government.
