America is a Christian nation ft. Dinesh D’Souza | #TruthStraightUp


♪ D’Souza: What does it mean to say
that we live in a Christian nation? What this really means is that our
core principles, in fact, we share even across the political spectrum.
The idea of the preciousness of human life, the dignity of human beings, equality,
the idea of compassion, these are all the legacy of Christianity.
The proof, by the way, is to look at the world before Christianity in
pre-Christian Greece and Rome. These values really did not exist,
at least not in their current form. When Jefferson sat down to write
where our rights come from, he could think of only one source:
the Creator. It is the theological principle that we are created equal in the eyes of
God. This notion of moral equality translates into a political corollary, which is
that no man has the right to rule another without consent. That becomes, not only
the core principle of anti-slavery, but, very interestinly, the core principle of
democracy. Because what’s democracy based on? No man has the right to
rule another without consent. ♪

  1. I have lots of respect for DD. Which version of christianity are you talking about? Example: Abortion? 60% of churches in US support abortion!

  2. I don't understand Muslims, their prophet muhammed was a pedo rapist murderer. If Jesus was a pedo rapist murderer I would convert my Christian faith to Buddhism or become an atheist but Jesus is the truth and the light so I will remain a Christian forever. Muslims are sick in the head. Reminder to radical Left, Muslim is not a race, there are black, brown, and while Muslims.

  5. Democracy is mob rule, where 51% get to force their will on the other 49%. The only thing consensual about Democracy is what the majority agree upon.

    America "may have" been founded on the morals of Christianity, as we stand today, that couldn't be farther from the truth.
    What is a Christian nation? Which Secular? Which Denomination? It's clear the founding fathers wanted no part of a nation ruled by religion, but by moral values of the time.

  6. SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE: We are Christians, not because the law demands it, not to gain exclusive benefits or to avoid legal disabilities, but from choice and education; and in a land thus universally Christian, what is to be expected, what desired, but that we shall pay a due regard to Christianity?

    In 1856, the House of Representatives also declared:

    [T]he great vital and conservative element in our system is the belief of our people in the pure doctrines and divine truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  7. Truth is, Today most of the world lives a life invented by Western Civilization who’s basis is Christianity. Average Buddhist or Hindu leads a western life in China & India with almost 3 billion people. Add to that Europe, Americas & Africa. The only true challenge to western civilization are western seculars who’s approach is largely to deny where freedoms came from. Abolition of slavery, suffrage & homosexual rights are largely an invention of western civilization. Ironic some in these groups are hostile to Christianity because of political & historical illiteracy. Without western civilization we will go back dark ages very quickly who’s first victims will be same groups. That’s why Gandhi, MLK, Mandela etc have used Christian principles so effectively to achieve human freedoms. Let that sink in

  8. Negatory. America is a free nation based on Judeo-Christian ethics. Saying America is a Christian nation, is basically comparing it to an “Islamic Nation”. Religion has no place in the public political sphere. Religion is a personal aspect of your life and you should keep it to yourself.

  14. I'm an American, but I'm pagan. My god is nature and those Christian fundamentals and morals aren't present in nature.
    Luckily for Christian's in this country, most animals leave each other alone unless provoked, which coincides nicely with the 1st and 2nd amendment, an animal sensing it's in danger, will typically give a warning, before attacking, as medical care doesn't exist in nature either and animals can't afford to be seriously injured. In regards to the first 2 amendments, we're supposed to hash out our disagreements through verbal means, before resorting to violence.
    Even Jesus said that a man should carry a sword, not to be violent, but to protect themselves from those that would use violence against them.

    All that being said, I wouldn't go so far as to say that this is a Christian nation, but I would say that their are many Christian motifs, but also pagan and natural ones as well.
    Just food for thought.

  15. This is not a Christian nation. It is a Godly nation. Christ is not required for someone to believe in God. God is mentioned 5 times in the Declaration of Independence. Christ is not.

  16. The core belief of Christianity isn't the Non-Aggression Principle(NAP), That's the core belief of libertarianism. Core belief of Christianity is the divinity of Jesus Christ (Jesus being the son of God) and his resurrection and rapture. Where does the constitution of the United States upholds these beliefs? Infact, it categorically prohibits the government from both promulgating and encroaching upon these beliefs.

  20. The idea of separation of church and state does not exist. What is a law? A law is morality with force behind it. All laws are the government’s imposition of morality onto its citizens. The question then becomes: where does that morality come from? Why does the government believe that rape is inherently wrong and thus must be punished with judicial force? All morality comes from Judeo-Christianity, which is why rape and murder are illegal.

    Ultimately, it is impossible for an atheist to have an objective source of morality. An atheist can have an OPINION on morality, but it wouldn’t be objective/universal and therefore could not be imposed onto other people. Only Christianity has an objective/universal standard of morality that applies to all human beings, regardless of culture or circumstance. Hence why the founders wrote that rights come from God and not the government. If rights came from gov’t, they would not be rights but they would be a license (which the gov’t could take away). Ultimately, without Christianity there could not be any objective morals/rights and therefore no America to begin with.

  22. Our Constitution comes from Common Law from Great Britain which is from the KING James Version of the Bible. We are the house of Israel. We follow the Word of the very Living GOD. We are a Free Born People. We Witness for our Mighty LORD-SAVIOR-KING JESUS CHRIST. Don't ever give up Mighty Ones. All Glory to Father GOD in heaven. Thy Kingdom come LORD, Thy Kingdom come

  23. Eh…. no. The US is a Christian Based Nation, but not an actual Christian Nation.
    Where our rights come from, how and what things were based on. But not everything. And Did we forget the separation of Church and state? did we also forget the freedom to practice and any or no religion?

    So its not a Christian Nation, its a Christian based nation where Christianity is the most practice religion.
    Which is great and I wouldnt want to change it.

  25. Daily reminder to anybody who sees someone spreading the lie of "pedophile priests", the only empirical data available suggests that the rates of accusations of abuse are no higher than any other job with a similar proximity to children. I don't know whether this is being intentionally pushed or if it comes from the phenomena of believing something you see in media once a week as being the norm/common behaviour

  35. These are tenets of almost all of the religions of the world; Christianity does not own these exclusively – we have freedom of religion in this country, and that doesn't mean you have a right to force everyone into your religion's "rules". Also, it seems that corporations have no problem ruling over their employees and controlling their lives – and if you don't live your life the way they want you to, they fire you. That, in my book, is ruling over another without permission.

  38. No it's not. That is just what Christians tell themselves so they can feel good about themselves. You could make an argument that it was founded on secularized principles of Christianity, but to say we are a Christian nation is to suggest that we are theocracy, which we are not and if we ever end up there, I will personally lead the revolution to tear it all down.
