    Hey Mikey,
    You’re obviously not aware of the following statements and orders issued by the first general of America’s army, George Washington:
    “every officer and man will endeavor so as to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier, defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country.”

    “To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.”

    On June 23, 1777, he issued the following order:

    “All chaplains are to perform divine service tomorrow, and on every other succeeding Sunday, with their respective brigades and regiments, when their situations will admit of it, and the commanding officers of the corps are to see that they attend. The Commander-in-Chief expects an exact compliance with this order, and that it be observed in future as an invariable rule of practice, and every neglect will not only be considered a breach of orders, but a disregard to decency, virtue, and religion.”

    July 4, 1775, he issued the following order:

    The General most earnestly requires, and expects, a due observance of those articles of war, established for the Government of the army, which forbid profane cursing, swearing and drunkenness; And in like manner requires and expects, of all Officers, and Soldiers, not engaged on actual duty, a punctual attendance on divine Service, to implore the blessings of heaven upon the means used for our safety and defense.”

    Rickey – like all good Christian Nationalists you provide a story without context.

    Yes, those are all statements attributed to General George Washington. However, here is (as Paul Harvey used to say) the rest of the story.

    The First Amendment wasn’t ratified (approved and put into practice) until December 15, 1791, long after the General made the statements.

    So – what is your point Rickey? Did you hope no one would be a fan of history and would let your statements stand as proof the USA is a “Christian Nation”?

    Christian Nationalists: They never play fair (show all the facts) and they do not share. 2020 vote them out no matter who… Vote Bleu
