The New York Times reports that "Christian Conservatives" in Texas, where I live, are all excited about making sure that schoolchildren are taught that the United States was founded as a "Christian Nation." As I mischievously posted at my Facebook page, no, it wasn't. The American Founders were a bunch of mostly Deist/Masonic/Unitarian traitors who rebelled (in violation of Romans 13 and 1 Peter 2:13-17) against their lawful Christian King and hated the Old Order (Altar & Throne) of Christendom.
It doesn't seem that either side in this debate is interested in including the Loyalist perspective, the neglect of which is one of my historical pet peeves. If American educators were really interested in the full picture, something like James H. Stark's The Loyalists of Massachusetts and the Other Side of the American Revolution (1910) would be required reading.
Unlike my secular liberal friends, as an Anglican I actually like the idea of a "Christian Nation." I just have a rather different concept of it than Americanists do. It's European monarchies before the French Revolution, and to a lesser extent into the 20th century, that were a lot closer to my idea of what a "Christian Nation" would be like.
