Conservative Primetime
Hardly a day goes by that some preacher or politician doesn't make the statement that all he or she wants to do is bring America back to the intent of the Founding Fathers to build a Christian America. History tells a different story. 
History tells us that our first two presidents, who certainly qualify as founding fathers, made the intent crystal clear in the Barbary Treaties of Peace and Friendship signed in 1796. Article 11 begins "as the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion…" That treaty was written under George Washington and signed by John Adams, who emphasized that his ratification included every word of the Treaty. 
References to God in the documents that gave birth to this remarkable Republic were just that, general references to God, not particularistic references to Jesus. And for many years, even the most zealous evangelicals sensitively used the term "Judeo-Christian" when referring to our religious heritage. Not so now. The "Judeo" has all but disappeared. And everyone who has flourished under our balanced system must be concerned about a movement to unbalance American society and American life.
