No. We have never been a Christian nation. The First Amendment, and the specific clause in the Constitution prohibiting any religious test settled that argument in the beginning. We are a secular nation based upon individual human rights.

Less participation in organized religion has been the trend for many decades now, and has been the subject of studies on modern societal behaviors.

Since we are losing that base, it looks like we are going to fry away and no longer exist as a nation. The west is claiming to be mainly christian. But what about homosexual marriages?



Is the USA a Christian nation? Yes.

What about homosexual marriages? Well, they are not marriages. Find another name for them.
To err is human. To forgive divine. Neither of which is Marine Corps policy.
