When John Adams wrote to Thomas Jefferson nearly 4 decades after the declaration of independence, he wrote “The general principles, on which the Fathers achieved independence, were the only Principles in which that beautiful Assembly of young gentlemen could unite.... And what were these general Principles? I answer, the general Principles of Christianity, in which all these Sects were united…” (America is a Christian Nation). The founders created the country based on these beliefs and now are being mocked and destroyed by the current state of the Country.
First off, our nation was found by Christians that embedded their beliefs into their work in founding this Christian nation. The founders added a system of checks and balances from the understanding “…if men were angels, no government would be necessary” (America is a Christian Nation). A majority of the founders were in fact, Christian. Over 80% of the founders held a belief in a denomination, or section under, the Christian Church. There are constitutional religious references such as “In God We Trust” and “…one nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.” and are considered constitutional because they were accepted by our founding fathers and written into the constitution. These are not even required to be respected but they come across as constitutional.
In addition, during the past few years, the Government of the United States has clearly infringed upon the rights of the American people. The current president had stated that he would not alter the hiring rights given to businesses. Several weeks after this statement by the president, businesses were forced to give contraception, or birth control, to employees. This change in hiring rights was a clear infringement upon the rights given to Americans. Previously the church and businesses alike would have the right to choose; now the rights were only left with the church. This was not the only infringing by the government though, there were sixteen other absurd changes including the defense of marriage act and a cross over a memorial being deemed unconstitutional for its height of 48 feet. Where will the government stop, will it continue past the church and infringe upon the secular side of America?
Next, the separation of church and state is protected by the constitutional right that congress shall make no law...
