Is America a Christian Nation and Why Does It Matter?

Tell students to remember examples provided to use during the class discussion.

  1. The Pledge of Allegiance and U.S. money contain references to God—when was “God” added? Why?
  2. There are two reasons the founders of the United States wanted to separate religion and government. What are the reasons?
  3. Legally, the United States is not a Christian nation, but demographically and culturally it is. Discuss what this means.
  4. The United States is also a nation of religious and cultural diversity. How will the increasing diversity impact the use of Christianity as the culturally dominant religion? (For example, will more holidays become “official” in the United States?)
