The U.S. started out as a collection of people who wanted to have freedom of religion, so they sailed the ocean blue to a new land where they could pursue their lives with liberty and justice for all.  However, as with all new endeavors, a person brings to the new endeavor ideas and concepts from their past experiences, so this Country was basically started with a foundation of belief in God with predominately Christian concepts.   And a principle philosophy of the Christian religion is that we "fell from grace" and we are separated from God by our sin, so we need to be "saved" so God "gave his only begotten son to die for our sins" so we can now be loved by God.   A side-effect of this salvation is that we have fallen out of love with ourself.   Let's look at this and see if there is another way to think about all of this.
