...Christianity. This belief is highly doubtful, and it is possible to assume, that Christianity not only wasn’t a source of wonderful achievements in the field of morality, freedom of speech and human dignity, but was resistant to them, trying by all means to prevent their spread.

...Christians (Boyd, 2007). Is America A Christian Country? Many people especially some politicians and religious activists have argued that America was meant to be Christian nation by those who founded it. Having a large portion of the population being Christians does not simply qualify the country to be a Christian nation. To be a Christian nation it has to be official, Christian beliefs at least, have to be enshrined in the constitution and institutions like judiciary, education departments, and commissions should be shaped by Christian teachings (Gregory, 2007). This is not the case for American constitution. The constitution is the document that basically... Is American a Christian country? Should it...
