It's All About Freedom
Though some may believe that America was founded as a Christian country, I don’t.
Our “Founding Fathers” were immigrants to a country that already existed and had inhabitants who resided here for thousands of years. America was occupied by people who practiced numerous faiths other than Christianity. There were people who celebrated the tides and the new moon. There were others who worshiped the dawn and daybreak.
And, all inhabitants gave thanks for the deer, water and corn that sustained life. Whatever their beliefs were, they probably weren’t Christian. America was founded by many peoples, but it was the Indian or Native American who had settled this country long before our “Founding Fathers” arrived on her shores.
America is and always has been a country of people, not religion. Sure, people practice different faiths, and that’s what and how this country has evolved. The evolution of America is all about freedom, plain and simple. Whenever politics and religion enter the quotient there’s bound to be conflict and division. America was founded by people thousands of years ago who didn’t find it necessary to lay religious claim to her shores. Being an American and living in America is to be free.
Though my dad and I both fought in wars defending freedom and diversity, we are not Christians. We fought and continue to fight for freedom be it religious or anything else given us by our Constitution. We love this country, period. God bless America.
