America is not now, and never was, a legally 'Christian' nation - The Free Lance-Star.

"Contrary to the biblical concept of "rule by divine authority," [the Declaration of Independence] bases its authority on the idea that "governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." Its use of terms like "Nature's God," "Creator," and "Divine Providence" does not endorse Christianity."
