It is often argued that the USA is a Christian nation – that is, that one or both of the following are true of the United States:

  • the country's laws (especially the Constitution) are based on Christian teachings
  • the founding fathers intended to endorse Christianity, or Christian principles

The truth or falseness of this suggestion is still being evaluated, but it remains clear that the founding fathers did intend a separation of church and state.
