    And none to Xianity, or any other religion. The G-d referenced therein was a deist conception, not a Xian one.

Does not mean our country was not formed on Christian principles as I pointed out in the OP
    The principles on which it was founded happen to coincide with christian as well as many other religions principles, we were not founded as a christian nation.

    Looks like the Declaration of Independence disagrees with you
    Which god? Nothing there to indicate that it is the christian god they are talking about. If it was founded as a christian nation you damn sure would have seen the name jesus littered throughout those documents but there's no mention?

They desparately want an atheist nation, but it will never happen. It takes Congress to change our direction. Think that can be accomplished? Doubt it.
    God is a generic term and simply because your religion happens to have one of those does not mean they were talking about yours.

    Not true, the Christians who formed our nation were about religious freedom. Many of whom came to the new world seeking religious freedom having been persecuted for their religious beliefs by other christian sects. The founders believed in religious freedom and did not create this nation as a christian nation but as a nation of freedoms.

    Xianity has never been "the only religion." There have been Jewish communities in the United States since before the formation of the country.
