Michael Licona: America is no Longer a Christian Nation
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,
Are you a Christian conservative and proud American? Do you belong to the Republican Party, the Tea Party or simply identify yourself as a Christian American? If so, then I may have bad news for you. The following is Michael Licona’s view on ‘America as a Christian nation‘:
It is anachronistic to think of America as a Christian nation. It is not and has not been for probably half a century or even longer. While the majority of Americans would profess to being Christian, for most, that means they attend a church service once in a while, such as Christmas and Easter. For Jesus, to be one of His followers meant far more than that. The point I would like to make is one made earlier: When the U.S. bombs a country in the Middle East, it is not a matter of “Christians” bombing “Muslims.” Rather it is the U.S. bombing a country in the Middle East. I say without apology that I am a follower of Jesus before I am an American. I don’t always agree with the course my country takes.
Wonder what the neo-conservatives, David Wood and Robert Spencer would have to say about such a declaration from one of their own apologists?
wa Allaahu ‘Alam.
