The assertion that the United States of America is a “Christian nation” and was “founded upon Christian principles” is one of the favorite lies from the Religious Right. Despite the overwhelming evidence that the Founders, no matter their religious beliefs or lack thereof, were secularists. If they, indeed, wanted to make this a “Christian nation” they had a funny way of not doing it! But that doesn’t stop the liars for Jesus at Fox News and other organizations from repeating the falsehoods.
For the record, the original Pledge of Allegiance did not have the words “under God” in it, nor did our money feature “In God We Trust.” The Constitution is entirely secular, forbidding state-sponsored religion, as well as any religious test for anyone wishing to serve their country.
Thanks to our good friend and YouTube sensation Thunderf00t, we can see the complete destruction of these Fox News liars in less than 9 minutes. We’re grateful for his sacrifice of watching all that nauseating Fox footage to get these clips.
