It is easy to believe anything you wish to be so when you are ignorant of the relevant history. We have freedom of and freedom from religion. In no way, shape or form was this country founded on any single religion. This is a simple historical fact.
One of the drives that lead to the creation of this country was to get away from mandated state religions that were the norm in Europe, and set up a new state where people were free to worship whatever they chose in any form they chose. The attempt was to create a more perfect union. Notice the complete lack of references to Christianity? That is no coincidence. It's one thing to believe in whatever you want to believe in, it is entirely something else to be ignorant to the history of your own country and proclaim "This is the way it is, always has been and always will be."
