When our Founding Fathers established America, and wrote the US Constitution, they quoted from the Bible more than from any other document. The principles and laws were built upon a biblical foundation and there was no question that America was a Christian nation.
In the 1892 case of Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, US Supreme Court Associate Justice Josiah Brewer wrote in the majority opinion:
“No purpose of action against religion can be imputed to any legislation, state or national, because this is a religious people. This is historically true. From the discovery of this continent to the present hour, there is a single voice making this affirmation. (465)”
“There is no dissonance in these declarations. There is a universal language pervading them all, having one meaning; they affirm and reaffirm that this is a religious nation. These are not individual sayings, declarations of private persons: they are organic utterances; they speak the voice of the entire people. (470)”
