USA IS NOT FOUNDED ON THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION:

by

The Treaty of Tripoli, May 26, 1797 (Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the United States of America and the Bey and Subjects of Tripoli of Barbary):

ARTICLE 11:

As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims],—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Mohammedan] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.”(Emphasis added)

Of course there were early Americans that did practice Christianity and some of the early settlers in this country were Christians, at least nominally, but there were also those who believed in deistic philosophy in those days. In fact, most of the influential Founding Fathers, held to deism and Freemasonry tenets rather than to Christianity.
