This is not a Christian nation. And that is a great gift. Everyone is welcome here. This is a nation where you are free to be a Christian. And that is a great blessing. You are also free to be a Buddhist, Muslim, Jew, Wiccan, agnostic, atheist, anything else, or nothing at all.
This is not a nation founded on a specific list of theological principles. Early settlers came here seeking freedom from the requirement to conform to a specific set of theological rules. Although the Founding Fathers ideas for creating a new nation were deeply shaped by Christian moral truths of their day, they never intended to form a theocracy. They envisioned a country that was hospitable to Christians, but also to practitioners of other faiths. They were adamant about the separation of church and state. They fled governments ruled by state sponsored religions in order to establish a more perfect union that would never be controlled by a state mandated theology.
On this Fourth of July celebration day, let freedom ring. But let it ring for everyone. Because if it only rings for those who live inside your particular religious belief system, it doesn't ring at all.
